Looksmart Crawler Activity

The looksmart crawler (Mozilla/4.0 compatible ZyBorg/1.0 (wn.zyborg@looksmart.net; h) hit my site hard in January. Why are they doing this when their advertisers have to pay for clicks and aren't they going out of business?

No idea. Shows how well run LookSmart was I guess...

Sure it's not the ht*p://www.WISEnutbot.com bot?
Mozilla/4.0 compatible ZyBorg/1.0 Dead Link Checker (wn.zyborg@looksmart.net; h*tp://www.WISEnutbot.com

This bot visits my site on a regular basis and I am not a paid advertiser to the looksmart directory.

If it is the WISEnutbot do they crawl for looksmart? First they start charging for clicks, then go out of business but still crawl my site... be gone already!
