ip -> 204.7.154.4
Host name -> athens.psrw.com
U_A -> $agentname ;)

Does it ask for robots.txt? It would make me laugh to add an entry saying
User-agent: $agentname
Disallow: /

I wonder if a robots.txt line like that would confuse other spiders? Perhaps safer to just ban it by IP?

That's funny LM, I wonder what the name intended for it really was, or did they mess up and use two $$ signs on their scalar assignment and ended up naming the scalar instead of assigning a value --> probably not important why I guess ...
