Taggers Target Their Ass With My Foot

Some bullshit crawler called "TargetYourNews.com bot" from the Land Down Under looks at robots.txt with the lame ass default user agent of the Python library before exposing their actual user agent.

72.36.160.114 - "GET /robots.txt" "Python-urllib/1.16"

72.36.160.114 - "GET /" "http://TargetYourNews.com/?cmd=targeting&urlid=xxx" "TargetYourNews.com bot"
Reverse DNS of the IP resolves to collabrank.org which redirects to toptaggers.com which is a bunch of Digg wannabe mother fuckers and the bot claims it's crawling for TargetYourNews.com and it all looks related, boring as hell, who gives a fuck.

Go fuck a kangaroo and keep my server out of your mental masturbation clusterfuck operation as I don't want to be digged, dugg or tagged, just piss off.

Ah, I feel better now.

That's exactly what elibron's crawler did last week. We discussed it on WW.

I've seen a few of these lately, wonder if there's a connection?

Probably the same shitty software.
