    Anyone know who this Agent is?
    This bot has been hitting my site pretty heavy lately. It seems to ignore robots.txt. I was wondering if anyone knows who/what it is?

    Agent: Syntryx ANT Scout Chassis Pheromone; Mozilla/4.0 compatible crawler IP: 216.7.179.20

    Only thing I have found is:
    unknown bot of syntryx.com, hosted by Jay Kaplan, NJ, US

    The same person/company also has another agent: lwp-trivial/1.41

    it's www.syntryx.com

    their bot scans for affiliate links
    AMs hire them for affiliate recruiting purposes
    as part of that effort, they also deep scan your inbound links to report to their clients why you link well for their target keywords

    I think I am going to block them through .htaccess because they really are pounding my site, plus they do not obey the robots.txt file at all.
