Does robozilla obey robots.txt? And if so, what does it do if it runs into a url in the database, that is also blocked by a robots.txt at the site?

Robozilla visits all the links within the Open Directory periodically, marking the ones that return errors for review. It does not spider the site.

Yep, that is what it does. Doesn't answer the question. :-)

Does it read robots.txt? (I've always thought not, but someone in another group is claiming it does).

Robo answered the question himself (actually it was a her). No, robo doesn't read robots.txt.
