    How do I prevent stupid customers creating infinate looping redirects?

    Customers keep making redirects like
    redirecting / to http://www.domain.com/
    which ends up with this in the .htaccess

    RedirectMatch .* http://www.domain.com/

    This creates an infinate loop when someone access www.domain.com they get redirected to www.domain.com and that goes on forever!

    I removed the redirect icon from the cpanel but they are still managing to somehow make redirects from somewhere else.
    Is the redirect function linked from somewhere else?
    I want to completely disable the redirect function, it has no use except to cause me problems.

    I get this from my clients and myself. I can't seem to fix it or know why it happens. Any answers will help a lot.

    some people like trapping robots in loops for weird reasons.
