    Been seeing the same bot - always coming from the bot-riddled Amazon servers.

    Considering the source it's probably just another spam harvester or content ripper.

    I Googled it and only found 2 or 3 posts regarding it. Which is weird, because it's hitting just about all my sites (on different hosts), especially my ePN (eBay) sites.
    Amazon AWS is a cesspit. I'm tempted to block it completely.
