Hi all,

 How can I maintain two rate limit strategies?One for spiders and one for
regular users?

I can get the IP address list of spiders from . Can I separate it by geo? Have people attempted

My website is being pounded by some screen scrapers and I want to block
them, but not at the risk of blocking search engine spiders.
