PlanetLab comes knocking

Here we go again with what looks like someone testing my PlanetLab barriers to see which proxies do or don't work and this just started a few minutes ago and will probably get more interesting in an hour or two.

Note the same browser from each location:

BANNED: 128.4.36.12 [planetlab2.pc.cis.udel.edu.] requested 1 pages as "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)"
BANNED: 129.10.120.111 [planetlabone.ccs.neu.edu.] requested 1 pages as "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)"
BANNED: 155.98.35.2 [planetlab1.flux.utah.edu.] requested 1 pages as "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)"
This PlanetLab bullshit needs the plug pulled on it ASAP.

Here's another educational bot:
"MQbot metaquerier.cs.uiuc.edu/crawler"

They pulled 1,400 pages - one every 7 seconds until I noticed them.

Bastards.

Good old University of Illinois.

They've hit me a few times and got shit.

I keep telling people OPT-IN crawlers and give up the OPT-OUT methods and they wouldn't have gotten a page from you.
