heres the issue. I have someone constantly spidering my site. They take a few hundred pages then hit the spider trap and are blocked. Within an hour they are back with a new ip and the same thing happens. The only way i can spot them is that they always come in off the same page and with a blank referrer. Therefore im looking at using htaccess to block anyone hitting this page with a blank referrer and within a certain ip range. I have no idea of the syntax for this and any pointers would be great.
