Sounds crazy to do right now, but I need to prevent Teoma from goin nutso on my bandwidth this early in the month. Anyone know if Teoma obeys robot.txt files? If so, what's the spider/crawler name?

akogo,

Yes, they obey robots.txt

User-agent: Ask Jeeves/Teoma

Consider disallowing them only from certain subdirectories, while allowing them to continue spidering your index page and "important" top-level pages... Otherwise, you may have to wait several months to get back in if they drop you.

Thanks Jim,

Do you think if I disallow them now, that they will just consider for inclusion in their index what they have already taken from my site?
