I have a travel guide website and have just noticed this make its first appearance.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that a TripAdvisor bot crawls
the web for content which is then re-written by their editors. Don't know if this is accurate ..?

This bot has visited one of my sites a few times over the last month, asking for robots.txt and one other page.

As it's highly unlikely to bring any traffic to the site, I've now banned it.
