Thanks goes out to the person from Paris who yesterday pointed his/her screenscraping software (which will remain unnamed to avoid promoting further infamy) at PHPkitchen.com and drained

off my server. Yes, your IP, 22.214.171.124, has been banned and you have been reported to your ISP and hopefully blacklisted.
It looks like the said software now has an option to override the disallow directive in robots.txt – any other webmasters know how to get around these types of nuisances?
Happy that I upgraded to a 40GB account,
