Internet Archive, The (aka the Wayback Machine) Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 Internet Archive is not responsible for robots.txt web site mangers who do not want internet archive cataloging their sites are. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on March 4, 2014, 1:24 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Agreed with the others. Someone else has stepped up to archive sites the best way they can. So they're, surprisingly, doing a better job than even the original site that claims to save old sites. Most of the stuff archived are boring and I think the guys at Wayback Machine knows this. What we want, is to surf like it was the times of then. If you can't do that, then go away. You've done your best but it's time to go. Prissy webmasters don't give a shit so they'll block everything for whatever reason it is in their minds to block. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on October 11, 2013, 3:22 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I tend to agree with all of these comments- I didnt know about the robots txt (is that what it is called) being so pervasive. But I didnt notice when I was trying to show a friend the old Scottish Site,and the classic Jobvent site- they were both pretty much gone- which begs that question- what is the point of that site at this point? -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 22, 2012, 4:27 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Might as well not even exist now that it literally doesn't actually let people access any old sites. Why is it even still on the net??? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on February 21, 2012, 7:26 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 when you have a mission as vital as these guys do, to hell with robots.txt -- Submitted By: () on February 20, 2012, 2:11 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
6 When certain websites in the archive began being blocked by the Webmasters, or others had been lost or deleted, having the error message "Robots.txt Data Retrieval Failure". -- Submitted By: (Mr.Bill) on November 23, 2009, 6:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 These guys have indeed boned, BIG TIME! Like someone posted, they have installed this "robots.txt" crap that prevents you from accessing all kids of old sites. We all know about how what TV Guide is doing, but amongst other things they have blocked the anti-Scientology site xenu.net. The man that runs xenu.net WANTS to be archived, but Wayback kowtowed to $cientologist lawyers. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 23, 2009, 8:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 This is only as of the date/time stamped on this comment, but here's a trick: put in the "HTTP" part, then the "WWW" part, and then put in the "Jumptheshark com" part (add the dot where the blank goes). I can access everything from December 5, 1998, up until somewhere in Fall 2006. Experiment with different dates, and maybe you can find what you are looking for (like the "Nickelodeon" page)! And yes, archive.org never boned! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on August 23, 2009, 3:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 It's not the Wayback Machine's fault that TV Guide blocked the old JTS content. TV Guide needs to be destroyed, along with Jon Hein's money and fame. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on August 4, 2009, 9:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
