IRLbot/2.0 bot banned

Request : /contact.html
IP :
Agent : IRLbot/2.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0;

This bot didn't make it into the site it went straight to a old contact form that had been removed due to spam and hit it 7 times.

This bot was banned long ago for being a waste of bandwidth being that it only takes our bandwith and gives nothing back.

To quote the website.
"Texas A&M research project sponsored in part by the National Science Foundation that investigates algorithms for mapping the topology of the Internet and discovering the various parts of the web."
Thats great and all but Texas A&M needs to use its own bandwidth for this project and not ours.
