shelob v1.0 - No robots.txt From Juniper Networks jdMorgan msg:3366527 4:41 pm on Jun 13, 2007 (gmt 0) Saw this:
208.223.208.*** - - [13/Jun/2007:11:29:26 -0500] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 403 666 "-" "shelob v1.0"
IP address resolves to a research facility belonging to networking equipment maker Juniper Networks.
Two things their researchers should take note of: The robots.txt standard, and the fact that Shelob was an
evil spider... at least according to Tolkien.
For non-compliant spiders, no tasty hobbitses to eat here, only 403s. :(
