Alexa crawler using requests for alexa rank for document discovery
I'm not using the alexa toolbar but a firefox plugin...

...which does this request to alexa:

GET /data?cli=10&dat=nsa&ver=quirk-searchstatus&uid=20080619175053&userip= HTTP/1.1

I had a php script to send a newsletter which I ran through the browser for testing. And next day I had ia_archive knocking on my door...

Is this news or have I been living under a rock?
