So I banned the UA and the IP-range...but too late! Today I got SPAM/UCE on the email adresses mentioned on most pages (as proprietor/designer contact..webmaster@ etc.) as well as brute-force attacs on adresses as info@ and the like.
Just thought maybe somebody'd like to know...
which is a huge portal in France and one of the biggest european ISPs
In my ever-growing lists of "determined" pests?
BT of the UK, now resolved at least to my sites,
Wanadoo and France.
Of course I would have to place Level 3 in the US far above these three.
Just to be fair :-)
are related to a company that rhymes
I haven't a clue about ryhmes or their deceptions.
Level 3 is the backbone provider for many reoccurring pests.
Most recently the bunch from Colorado.
Level 3's only interest is in raising their bandwith.

Be nice if webmasters could make their profit on "hits" ;)
just wanted to point out Voila is the provider for Wanadoo
I'm not sure where you have this information from, recently saw an IP block (193.252.170.) owned by France Telecom, with a wanadoo abuse e-mail address given.
Well, if Voila is provider for wanadoo - another reason for me to block it ;)
Fact is: It didn't obey robots.txt, and I got spammed by them - that's all I'm saying.
I guess you'd have to be in France, Switzerland, Belgium, or Canada (being the french-speaking countries in the western hemisphere, sorry if I forgot someone) to get the abuse.

A SE bot occasionally not obeying robots, okay, has happened to better bots :). But a SE bot doing a side job as harvester?
Anyhow, it's two bad behaviors at once, and I thought somebody would like to know.
I can't say for SURE they didn't - just like I couldn't say for sure - that googlebot isn't serving up spam emails - just doesn't seem likely.
Sometimes coincidinces seem amazing - and in this case - I think thats what it is.
it would be simple to do with SSI [so simple even I could do it], except for having people emailing you as to why they should email their IP address at your website...
Other than that...
