Some call it the evil empire, I'm just finding it persistently annoying. Thanks to MSN's ignorant robots (they ignore the robots.txt file), they have been continually been creating dead nodes on Birmingham OpenGuides. So far I've been wasting alot of my time trying to delete them as soon as they are created. As a consequence I started noting what IPs have been creating nodes, then doing a few reverse DNS lookups. MSN have not been the only one, but they have been the most persistent, and by ignoring the robots.txt file have caused me to create code to block the creation of specific nodes (they auto redirect to the home node). I shouldn't have to create the code in the first place.
