    Is it respecting robots.txt?

    It identifies itself as Snapbot. It was hammering my site all day yesterday as well. Appearently its something similar to's archiving thing, except it takes pictures. It seems to respect my robots.txt, I don't know for sure because I didn't go into deep details on analysing its behevaours, but if you want more information, the bot's owner's website is here (note, I'm not affiliated with them by any means, do not ask me to relay message please).

    Hi, could you tell me which lines to add to make it open less connections and less frequent visits? Thanks.
