Hmm yes, traces out to a isp block at http://www.nwlink.com [nwlink.com]
What made you think it was somebody? Pattern to the spidering or just the throughness?

Brett,
The UA name, and the fact they were just hitting root domains, tells me it's some type of spider...
These root domains have not been submitted anywhere yet.... Inktomi finds them over time, if we don't submit, so that's not too unique, but sure would like to know the owner of this UA...

Were you thinking it was ms simply because of the location?
