Spiders that bypass your robots.txt file

Is it possible for a spider (search engine bot) to bypass your robots.txt file?

Some people have speculated that Google bots actually ignore your robots.txt file, though most bots are supposed to be bound to respect this file. There is nothing to say they will though.

A search engine bot will not ignore the robots.txt file. They were programmed to respect and obey this file for the good of the site owner. If you do not have this file on your site, you can expect that a bot will crawl every page it can find.
