The snapshot robot from snaps.com does not obey robots.txt

Project admins who want to protect their pages from beeing accessed through this snapshot stuff can try this in .htaccess :

deny from 38.98.19

It worked on my domain although I'm not sure wether the excluded IP range is sufficient.


p.s.: I have to correct what I wrote ... show_user.php is just missing in robots.txt so it's not the fault of snaps.com - sorry for that

http://www.snap.com

Agent identifier (HTTP_USER_AGENT) are
- "Snapbot/1.0 (Snap Shots, +http://www.snap.com)"
- "Mozilla/5.0 (SnapPreviewBot) Gecko/20061206 Firefox/1.5.0.9"

But it was my fault, the bot does obey robots.txt - I assumed that the BOINC sample robots.txt contained all database driven pages but it does not.
