SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent ".*Indy Library.*" spambot=1
SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent ".*IUPUI Research Bot.*" spambot=2

<Limit GET POST PUT>
Order allow,deny
deny from env=spambot
allow from all
</Limit>

I'm thinking something is not right with this. If so please help me out. If there is a better way to do this with .htaccess let me know. Thanks.

I think you could probably get something like this working but why not use the "Close to perfect .htaccess ban list [webmasterworld.com]."
