    I came upon some old threads with lists of bots and crawlers you can block from your site. I'm focused on the robots.txt side of things ... sorry, don't have anything for those using .htaccess. Anyway, the lists I came across had lots of duplicates. I cleaned it up and the result is shorter and more organized. For example, the previous list was 448 entries, but after deduping it is now only 298. So that should make it easier for crawlers to read.

    If you see something missing from the list, send me a message and I'll post an update.
