Bots from ServerDeli at Mediopia

Something came crawling from ServerDeli hosted at Mediopia, and it was the typical bot with an invalid user agent if you notice the space between "compatible" and ";" and nevers asks for robots.txt, just pages.

Here's the crawler info:

209.125.47.35 [win1.serverdeli.com.] requested 26 pages as "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible ; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)"
Sorry, but my site isn't a deli snack for whatever bullshit you're running.

It always always gives me pause when you see a webhosting company using HOTMAIL addresses for their contact information:
OrgName: MEDIOPIA TECHNOLOGIES (IMA'D W/ 69998

So it looks like blocking 209.125.47.* wouldn't hurt anything.

An entire section of my .htaccess is dedicated to these IE User Agent misspellings for obvious reasons ;-)
