Hello, I am writing this email to you because of the following. Blocked spider in robots.txt found in log file.
User-agent: Nutch Disallow: / To date this month Nutch has appeared in site log an unreasonable amount of times bearing in mind it is supposed to be blocked. It is obvious that your spider is not reading the robots.txt file and as my domain contains a copyright warning, can i assume you will be able to ensure that your spider or the user of your spider will stop the repeated visits and possible copying of text / graphics as well. Below is a copy of log files from the last six months, that although not large in bandwidth usage, does constitute a problem as it seems to show an increasing demand.
