Since i believe Yahoo search results are now powered by Bing, is there much point in allowing yahoo-bot to crawl my site, is it actually serving a purpose or just eating bandwidth?

Thanks.

I wonder this, too.

My take is that yahoo is only using bing in certain coutries and in any case for a limited period of time. By letting them crawl I'm hoping that they are refining their own algorithms and when their divorce comes around we may have a good engine again.

Well, I can dream, can't I? :)
