Problem of syntax and ordering

here is my robots.txt. I have added to it piecemeal over the last three years and I fear it has become a bit of a mess. I find ordering hard to grasp on robots.txt. For example, will slurp come in, read the second entry concerning only it, and then dash off and ignore all the main * stuff at the bottom.

Comments appreciated...
