  • How Do I Keep Spam Bots from Crawling the forums?

    I would like search engines to be able to crawl my board, but don't want spam email harvesters (or whatever THIS guy crawler1.crawler918.com is doing) crawling my site. What is the best way to accomplish this?

    Don't allow email addresses to be publically accessible.

      They aren't. However, some people put email addresses in messages, and I would like to try to keep bad crawlers out.
