    I don't know, probably just me. As I said above its a great tool and makes things immensely easier to maintain/change. But for some reason anytime I have to create/edit a CSS file it just irritates me, like finger nails on a chalkboard.

    I guess I'm just weird that way...what do you expect from someone who turns a warforged into the easter bunny!

    Well that does take a steampunk fetish to places best left untouched...

    I agree about the css though. It's a great tool, but it is less that intuitive. Perhaps that's just because my editors don't have syntax highlighting for css. I should sort that out.

    Bad bots tend to ignore the robots.txt file. The best way to block bad bots is to IP ban them. If however it is a bunch of copies on different IPs you might have to contact your host about setting a limit on how many pages can be accessed by one IP in a given time period (bad bots like to spam page requests really fast).

    Very true. I was going to mention about bad bots ignoring the robots.txt file but I figured I covered the basics and didn't want to get bogged down by technicalities. One can use the htaccess file to ban bots, IP addresses, and hot-linking (to name the top three) but that is probably getting a bit too technical for here.
    Cheers,
