robots.txt

I just saw this on a forum:

robots.txt is a virtual "keep off the grass" sign.

I like it, and I think it's a fairly apt metaphor. (Especially to explain how it's something that only respectful bots, which have been told specifically to look out for the "sign", will heed, rather than a technical safeguard preventing access.)
