Well, do you have any example of an URI that you want to act on?

Or if you wish:

acl blockme urlpath_regex -i sexy
http_access deny blockme

obviously there are many other regex options in squid, have a look here http://www.visolve.com/squid/squid24s1/access_controls.php for some examples.

I don't understand, the proxy always caches all hits...

Are you talking about not letting the clients to get an updated version at all? (only allow hits to the cache and not further)
