If I try to open the given URL with a null browser's user agent string
or if I drop the `User-Agent' HTTP header I receive an error page
saying:

  Forbidden

  You don't have permission to access /wiki/Group:PRISM on this server.
  Apache Server at libreplanet.org Port 80

If I use the default browser's user agent string and I send the
`User-Agent' HTTP header everything works as expected.

It's somewhat ironic that a page whose purpose is to reveal and defeat,
at least partially, the nasty plans of such a conspiracy for
surveillance, to require people to expose their browser's identity,
don't you think?
