why post data? well, i think you've probably got the right idea with the botnet thing... it is likely a pr0n spammer's botnet attempting to build backlinks... are the requests GETs or POSTs? i've seen many recent attempts at cross site scripting to pull in php shell code to try to root into a system... luckily my SNORT traps them and let's me know about it... if these are done in POSTs, you generally can't see them in the logs... GETs on the other hand do show... in my case, though, SNORT blocks them before they even get to the web server ;)

It's a spambot.

64.246.18.nnn "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20060206 Songbird/0.1"

Went directly to a page to POST information, no other accesses.

The IP that I posted was from ev1servers.net, botnet very likely.
