    GnowitNewsbot

    I am having trouble with GnowitNewsbot it keeps hammering a site. I added a robots.txt file to Disallow it
    but the obviously do not follow the robots.txt rules.
    Does anyone else know how to exclude this bot?

    I tried to contact them directly and they did not have any contact information on their website.
    I then went to their face book page and complained. They excluded me from all activity. But they would not respond to any of my questions. I asked it this was a permanent block or could I expect them to try again in the future etc. I have not had any trouble with them since. They were querying my sites 2 or 3 times per minute. Rogues, no accountability. Good Luck
