I have a weird problem. I am able to update my robots.txt however for some reason, whenever I click on www.mysite.com/robots.txt, the following code would always be at the end:

User-agent: *
Crawl-delay: 10

I could change any other stuff and it would show instantly. But this code at the end just appears from nowhere! I don't see it when I download the robots.txt from my file manager.

I'd suggest to temporary rename your robots.txt on the server - if you still can access it after verifying that the file is definitely not preset in your webroot anymore your robots.txt seems to be auto-updated/generate from either
