Is this activity common then?
Blocking them would have no effect on the site in question but I may hold off for now and see how it goes.

Thanks (coincidence, was just listening to the track of your name!)
Anyhow, I mean the unusual activity, is this something know from this ISP ?

- Check the IP at projecthoneypot.org [projecthoneypot.org...]
Look at the number of type of UAs and whether there are any comments.
- Google the IP (to see if it shows up on anti-spam forums, etc.).

I have only a few bad IPs from that range, nothing since September, and all single hits from compromised (ie virus'd) computers.
Telstra (bigpond) in general, I have about 160 bad IPs going back a couple of years. Not too bad. I need to keep it open for genealogy lists and contacts.
I block MSIE 7.0b. It's way past beta time and I only see it now as "bot" activity.

Good point, thank you.
