While looking over my weblogs I have found various people and bots that I do not want looking at my website. Some of these bots I just don\'t like, like Cyveillance, (which just plain scares me -- google it if you do not know about it) NameProtect, Turnitin, and other ill behaved ones, like Fast. I know this has been asked for many times. I have found an easy way to deal with these bots by ip, useragent, referer, or users by id. When the banned access a page, the page is empty. I have thought about adding this to my userstats package or packaging it up in a seperate plugin. My question to the user community is should I include it in stats or package it separately. TomW

I would vote for seperate. Don\'t want the overhead of the stats package.
