Bad Robots

Hi All,

Lately I have been getting almost non-stop hits from what I assume to be a bad robot at IP 54.36.*

Within Xenforo I blocked the IP which, as far as I can tell, blocks the robot from seeing posts, etc.

I want to block this bad robot entirely. I went into cpanel and blocked 54.36.148. 54.36.149 and even 54.36. I would have thought doing so in cpanel would keep bad robot from getting to my site at all but her keeps showing up as shown. Any advice appreciated.

Here is an example log from whoisonline ....

Answering my own question. cPanel was placing the entries at end of my .htaccess file. Once I copied them to the begining, all good.
