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
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 (126.96.36.199).
Does anyone know a phone number for these people? It's eating up our bandwidth like crazy.
