Wednesday, October 04, 2006 Scrapes LookSmart

Noticed at hit from one of my scraper probes in which contained the IP address of the original crawler.

Looked up the IP address and guess where it came from:

"Mozilla/4.0 compatible ZyBorg/1.0 (;"
Isn't this precious that GoodBidWords got caught because of all the places to scrape they decided to scrape a search engine that I don't permit to crawl my site!

What a hoot, second-hand scraper busting, this rocks!

What's your beef with Look$mart?

LookSmart never sent me any traffic, a total bandwidth sponge.

Then they either feed or are allowing themselves to be scraped by even worse sites.

Sounds like sour grapes to me ....

If that's what it sounds like maybe you need to clean out your ears.

They're just a waste of time and now you're wasting my time discussing that waste of time, which is just wasteful.
