Squid: not to log access by a particular host

Hi folks,

is there any way to "tell" Squid to stop logging entries generated by a particular host? Say my LAN is, and I want to log web access from all hosts in my LAN, except from
Long time ago I remember reading it is possible to do it, but I haven't been able to find it now, even after some happy googling...

I know this is really old, but thought I would comment for the next person who stumbles upon this.

In the /etc/squid/squid.conf file, type the following:

acl block_ip src

log_access deny block_ip

That should stop logging access from that IP through Squid.
