dstiles, thanks for the info. You know, when it comes to Things MSN, I tend to err on the 403 side if the IP's bare and the UA isn't search-specific. Alas, as of 30 minutes ago, it looks like I need to batten down still more hatches...

What the --?
How silly of me to think I could 'trust' msnbot-[yada-yada].search.msn.com. No more.
