A funny htaccess file

Sometimes I use Duckduckgo to look up some IP that I caught in my Apache logs doing weird things. Not to do anything out of the information, more out of curiosity indeed. During one of those searches, I stumbled upon what seems to be an accidentally exposed htaccess file (precisely, not .htaccess – the starting dot was missing), and I thought it had some funny contents. Basically, it blocks the IPs of a number of French institutions (although most of the blocks are actually commented out).

I guess it can always happen to be useful to have a little listing of a few institutional IPs, so here are that htaccess file’s contents (I just removed a bunch of redirects as well as the custom 404 document):
