apache configuration regarding fetching other sites

I noticed lines like this in my log. - - [07/Sep/2010:14:20:14 -0500] "GET
HTTP/1.1" 200 44 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US;

The response code of 200 tells me that it worked for whoever is wanting the
information. What is that method called that they’re using, and how do I
configure apache to ignore such requests?

Well, after some more checking, it seems that Apache is just serving my index page and not something from the URL in the entry. It’s not a problem after all.
