I'm seeing a lot of quick hits. Visits to a page followed by heading to one of the following without waiting even one tenth of a second (read:not human)
/crossdomain.xml <--- not sure what cms this belongs to, but it's not mine
/wp-comments-post.php <---- 500 times a day minimum and it's not a wordpress site
The quick redirect is causing the initial page to display 0.00 time on site in my stats when it immediately precedes a hit on one of the above, even though none of these(and other) files exist.
I took the drastic step of banning the offending countries to reduce this number by 80%. Now I'm working on banning just IP's/bots from the remaining countries, which is a MUCH smaller list.
