No, if I remember correctly the new Yahoo bot is called YahooSeeker.
What you may be seeing is someone searching from the corporate office of yahoo. That is just my guess though.

This is for Yahoo Shopping

I agree Rugles, srch4.corp.yahoo.com originates from Yahoo corporate office.
Yahoo shopping crawler UA is:
YahooSeeker/1.0 (compatible; Mozilla 4.0; MSIE 5.5; h*tp://help.yahoo.com/help/us/shop/merchant/)

Yes, the UA for product search is YahooSeeker/1.0. But it looks like they (1) also run some bots on corporate IP's, and (2) surf sites in connection with product search.

I've been seeing one from:
neptune4.search.corp.yahoo.com using the UA: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0)
and one from srch14.corp.yahoo.com using UA: homes/jignashu/units/bin/saisudhir/unity1.pl/0.1 libwww-perl/5.69

Do new yahoo bots mean that Ink will be more than a paid for inclusion SE?

We had about 40k visits over night and early this morning from:
YahooSeeker/1.0 - sh*.rmi.shop.dcn.yahoo.com (216.109.126.*).
It's unbelievably rude! It was doing nothing but trying to get images that don't even exist on our server, several a second from several diff. ip's. I got it banned in .htaccess, then 4 hours later it started again - only this time it was:
libwww-perl/5.69 from feed21.shop.corp.yahoo.com (188.8.131.52).
Does anyone know a phone number for these people? It's eating up our bandwidth like crazy.
