Seems like they still haven't fixed the problem of leaving referring urls in the log files.

Nothing better than looking at log files filled with adult-themed hypened urls from a major search engine spider when your site has nothing to do at all with the referred urls.

Big advancement in technology Alta/Yahoo...

I got a burst of freakish requests from their bot early this morning. Only about a dozen in the space of 2 minutes. Other requests from the bot look fine. (in my case it didn't list off referals, but the directory/file it was seeking was definately not from my site).
