Asked for Robots.txt, was denied, repeatedly tried to access site anyway.

Guess if you ask more than once you expect different results?

Here's the rest of Bluehost.
Thanks for the heads up, as I only had two of these previously.

Thanks. I didn't have all of those ranges.

I have a note that 69.89.16.0 - 69.89.31.255 is bluehost but 69.89.0.0 - 69.89.15.255 is Strategic Systems Consulting (also blocked) - you include 69.89.15 in the rewrite.

Oh crap @Incredibill .. No excuses .. this thing is supposed to obey.

I put on a different write a while back and upon reading this thread realized that I miswrote a modifier.

Apologies all around to the good people of Webmaster world .. Lonestarbot has been around for quite a while and trust me when I say that it is not some rouge entity that roams about unbridaled.

The UA is Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; LoneStarBot/1.06; +http://www.setxwebdev.com/bot.htm) .. and the only ip address you should see this coming from is 69.195.71.70.

The ip ranges will change once I load this into it's own boxes and the dedicated ip's will point to me and not bluehost.

Thankyou again @Incredibill for bringing this to the attention of those here at Webmasterworld .. And again, my most sincere apologies.
