Does the Link Checker obey robots.txt?


   "...the W3C has a link checker. It announces itself as
   W3C-checklink/3.9.2 [3.17] libwww-perl/5.64. It does not respect
   robots.txt and is therefore banned in .htaccess with the rule"

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^W3C-checklink
    RewriteRule .* - [F,L]
