I'm confused, do you mean that you want us to visit the web page with the
user agent set to lynx so that the admin might allow lynx?

Some such thing: the webmaster blocks any User Agent with name that begins "Lynx". Therupon we change our User-Agent name to one that does n't begin "Lynx" but clearly suggests it. The webmaster sees the visit, and sees no loss because of it: well, then, why bother blocking "Lynx"? Of course, if the page is full of advertizing not seen when Lynx is used, maybe he will see loss and not be good to us, and instead widen the blocking range.... We hope not.
