caught this one sniffing around today. Boy these guys are getting bad. If we didn't have Russian customers I'd block the whole country.

Unless you do business with them you're better off blocking the Ukraine, Romania, Russia, etc.

Oh, hey, I've got those blocked already :) Assorted robots, notably including ahrefs whose distinctive behavior pattern is to first pick up pages and then get robots.txt. Presumably followed by "Darn! I could have got robots.txt in the first place and made myself look good. None of those pages was disallowed anyway."

I wouldn't have the heart to block Russia. Sometimes I get people from Yandex looking for pictures of rats ;)
