RED ALERT #2 - Distributed IP Scraper on BBCOM

This one is virtually identical to scraper spotted on Vericenter, same profile to the letter.

Claims to be the same exact browser:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060124 Firefox/
This spider was seen operating from these IP addresses:
This IP range belongs to BBCOM:
OrgName: Backbone Communications, Inc.
Address: 515 South Flower Street
Address: Suite 4350
City: Los Angeles
StateProv: CA
PostalCode: 90071
Country: US

NetRange: -
I'm blocking for the moment, but keeping an eye on the rest of their network in case these scrapers switch to a new block.
