I, too, have been told by my host provider that a smaller htaccess is faster.There was a time... think dial-up, or at least before high-speed broadband, web servers were slow, HTTP/1.0 was the best we had and browsers took forever to render & load a webpage.
delete semalt etc from my list of agents to block
as Referer. Same bot.
Semalt was not in the User-Agent, but in the RefererSorry, yes, wrong list. My bad.
