What do we think of this bot? - - [21/Mar/2005:11:46:58 -0500] "GET /article.php/
GL2UserInterface HTTP/1.0" 200 26580 "-" "NP/0.1 (NP; http://
www.nameprotect.com; npbot at nameprotect.com)"

Blurb from their site:

"NameProtect® is a Digital Asset Protection company providing eMarket
Intelligence to leading corporations. We proactively provide protection
of brand assets, recovery of diverted revenues and detection of online
identity theft and fraud."

To block or not to block?

So far, it's behaving. I'd block it anyway should it start producing
404s. But I don't really like the sound of this ...

bye, Dirk
