    Blocking them crawling I think you just need to add a little bit of text to your robots.txt or htaccess file.

    I'm sure there is a way to also redirect human traffic from one website ie 123people to somewhere else using htaccess but but I will have to leave that to someone better technically minded than me to tell you how to do it.

    Something like

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://www\.123people\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /gfy.php [R=404,L]

    Then have the gfy.php as a bounce page or something, so IF it does display you can manually bounce it.

    Can't say I have ever tried it but something like this in your htaccess should work.
