Isn't this nice, the JAP anonymization service is so busy trying to protect people's privacy that they don't give a shit that people will use their technology the assault web servers. Their slogan proclaims "ANONYMITY ISN'T A CRIME" but aiding and abetting an assault on a server could be considered a crime, questionable ethics at a minimum.
I got hit by someone utilizing their bullshit yesterday:
18.104.22.168 [proxy2.anon-online.org.] "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows NT 4.0)"What these dipshits don't know is the few pages of data they downloaded, before the bot blocker kicked in and stopped the assault, has all been injected with hidden tags using CSS. Humans don't see these tags but the scraper, when stripping the HTML to get my text, will expose these tags to the search engine, and then I'll be able to hunt them down like the dogs they are.
22.214.171.124 [proxy1.anon-online.org.] "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows NT 4.0)"
Anonymous doesn't mean anonymous for scrapers anymore because even if you hide where you crawl from if this data shows up on the web it will expose where you live so be careful what you do with that data you sneaky little bastards.
