Check whether the affected users have any spam in their UA string,
such as "GoogleToolbar" or "AskBar" etc.  If this is the case then
edit your RobotUA directive, in interchange.cfg, to change "google"
to "GoogleBot" and to remove "ask" from the list.  If "bot" is in the
list then "GoogleBot" is covered anyway.

I use the following:

A future Interchange release will allow a "NotRobotUA" directive where
UA spam can be defined.  I.e.

    NotRobotUA  GoogleToolbar, AskBar, FooBar
