Search Engine Harvesting

Probably never would've noticed this but the referral string changing set off my referral spam trap. Turned out it wasn't a referral spammer at all but someone crawling my site trying to mine specific topic search engine results from both Google and Yahoo.

Very strange behavior too.

Cloaked as MSIE, downloaded all the images as well to remain hidden, yet crawled so fast it also set off a speed trap.

Stupid stupid stupid.
