There was previous debate that lack of a Robots file would possibly lead to problems but this doesn't seem to be the case if these major players aren't using them.
well, assuming that the domain listed in your profile is the domain you are talking about, it appears that since you grabbed a copy of the robots.txt from searchengineworld that allows everything, that you have the problem fixed...
how do i know about where it was copied from? because it says so right in it ;)
