    >>>In the project, 30 Web crawlers are running on 3 different sites. The detailed manner of the crawlers is described as bellow. We run the crawlers attentively not to disturb your Web sites. However, if you have any troubles, please let us know. We will get rid of any problems as soon as we can.<<<

    those who release bots into the wild usually understand that they can conceivably cause problems of one sort or another. if you think the bots are hung up on your site you can report it -- they'll probably appreciate the input for the quality of their work.
