A lot of that you don't need to block. The tag pages are useful for indexing based on certain words, similar for users.

The admin, IP and message pages are not visible to logged-out users and aren't linked from anywhere public. (If anything, adding them to your robots.txt might be considered insecure as it tells a hacker those pages exist.)

I don't know if login/register are even worth it to block. The only reason I blocked them on my site originally was to prevent them coming up higher in search results when my site was new. Probably not needed now.
