Mojeek - In general I'll go along with wilderness on that. Only known genuine bots are allowed access to our sites from any kind of server.
It makes no difference whether the server range is rated good or bad. I even block all of the server IPs at the server farm where my own servers are leased from. :)
The simplest criterion is: does this bot benefit my site? Very few do, and I have to say I hadn't been aware of mojeek until this thread, although I may have blocked the IP range based on an unknown (eg your) bot.
In the spirit of looking for alternative UK SEs (I reside in UK) I have unblocked the IP 188.8.131.52 and added MojeekBot to my Allowed list. Let's see how it goes. :)
And incidentally, you may want to check the WebmasterWorld forum UK & Ireland Search Engines at [webmasterworld.com...] - a thread on a new UK SE has just begun there.
