Blocking a legit Google bot?

I am challenging a few AS numbers, and have Known Bots in the “OFF” position. Am I to conclude that this Google bot that is being blocked is not legitimate? Thank you.

The parentheses in your expression are wrong. You only exclude known bots for the last ASN.

You best use this expression

(ip.geoip.asnum in {15169 24940 136907} and not cf.client.bot)

If you look up that IP address, you’ll see it resolves as a legitimate Googlebot.
