You should be able to add CIDR ranges to ip ban triggers.

For example, I would like to add 66.249.64.0/19 to prevent the googlebot from looking at my board.

Then add your CIDR spec to .htaccess server side.

Kindred

In short... No, we should not.   Bans should not be used that way in the forum and should be done in htaccess as shambles indicates

Also, ban Google?  Why? That seems stupid....
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Can't you deny Google by robots.txt?
