Kaushik, What Freaking Experiments?

I found this user agent coming out of Microsoft's Area 131 requesting that people "contact kaushik for these experiments" that kept hitting one of my servers. "contact kaushik for these experiments"
So I did a little data mining of my own and searched Microsoft and couldn't decide if this experiment was from Kaushik #1 or Kaushik #2.

Both Kaushik's appear to be working for the Data Management, Exploration and Mining Group (DMX) at Microsoft, but which one ran this experiment?

OK, will the real Kaushik running these experiments please stand up?

BTW, was your experiment finding sites running bot blockers?

If so, you succeeded and your requests were stopped. ;)
