((These are the only two threads I could find. I know there was at least one more, ( because I participated in it ) but Google isn't picking it up.))

At any rate, no robots.txt.

Three Version updates in just a day.

209.249.80.242 - - [27/Jan/2005:20:21:11 -0800] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 20407 "-" "Clushbot/3.7-BinaryFury (+http//www.clush.com/bot.html)"

209.249.80.242 - - [27/Jan/2005:23:58:36 -0800] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 20407 "-" "Clushbot/3.8-BinaryFury (+http//www.clush.com/bot.html)"

209.249.80.242 - - [28/Jan/2005:06:04:37 -0800] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 20407 "-" "Clushbot/3.9-BinaryFury (+http//www.clush.com/bot.html)"

These are the fastest version changes that I have ever seen.

Still not checking robots.txt though.

FWIW: i dropped by the clush website and spoke with their livehelp folk... their /bot.html file doesn't state the name of the bot to use in the robots.txt file... their livehelp folk told me to use "clushbot" sans quotes... i mentioned that it had been seen in three+ different versions in one day and they responded that it was evolving ;)

Thanks wkitty42. :)

They didn't happen to indicate if they're ever going to go the robots.txt route did they?
