Does it matter whether I use the CIDR notation or 206.46?
Does one work any better than the other?
I already added the CIDR notation.
I have noticed that sometimes bad spiders slip past Deny statements that use CIDR and end up getting caught by bot-trap. If the CIDR Deny statement was working, they should not have the opportunity to get caught by bot-trap.
bot-trap snagged 775 bad spiders in my sites in the last two months.
