On a PLUG thread from March 27, Jon Jensen suggested that I add these two lines to my squid.conf to make it harder for sites to recognize that I am using Squid (and thus less likely that they will break just because of Squid):

header_access X-Forwarded-For deny all
header_access Via deny all

Perhaps it is the inclusion of those configuration parameters that allows my DG+Squid configuration to work with this site.
