As some of you know I can ask some really bumb questions, so if this is one of them you could just ignore me.
I was at Danny Sullivans Site ( forgot the name of it) learning about search engines when I came to the robot protocol section.
I noticed that there was no mention that by listing your private file names in this list it is possible for anyone to view your robot.txt file simply by adding /robot.txt to the end of the site url in the browser address bar.
Why would you want to display the names of the files you are wanting to keep private?
I emailed Danny for an answer, but I guess he is too busy, or this is a dumb question and should just be ignored?
By the way if you have not seen my site latetly, please check it out...
