slurp and robots.txt how long before slurpy begins to obey changes? kpaul msg:20874 12:47 am on Jul 31, 2003 (gmt 0) with the recent heavy influx of slurp on my site, i decided to lock down a couple folders that used session ids. i changed my robots.txt over a day ago, and slurp has downloaded it several times, but it doesn't want to obey. i'm 99% sure the code is valid...

Did slurp start obeying the robot.txt? I haven't had any problems with this.. but I'm usually in the position to create the file before the site goes live.. kpaul msg:20876 5:05 pm on Aug 7, 2003 (gmt 0)
sorry, shoulda written here sooner. i actually had had an error in my robots.txt. Slurp is obeying now.
also noticing it going after a lot of dynamic URLs.
