Due to a crawler that thinks sending hundreds of requests at a time is an acceptable practice, something that effectively results in a denial of service attack on the web server, Yahoo’s crawler has hereby been completely and totally banned from indexing any of our websites. While I may lose a visit or two every day from this, it beat losing the dozens of other visits because the web server is effectively tanked. I even tried to play nice by using a robots directive to limit requests without any change.
You suck, Yahoo. No wonder you’re becoming so irrelevant.
