Awhile back there was a very active thread that discussed using a php script to redirect unwanted bots through the use of htaccess and robots.txt. Stubborn bots who ignored robots.txt got redirected to a "spider trap" and fed unlimited email addresses ;)

I can't find the thread anymore ... can someone point me to it, please?
