Two new ones. Asked for robots and began following links.

Holmes is an easy-to-use addition to MacOS 8.5's Sherlock which provides the user with the ability to create search sets with similar Internet search sites (plug-ins) grouped together.

Now, instead of tediously selecting Web search sites in Sherlock, simply select a set in No Shoot! Sherlock and launch Sherlock. Your set is now present in Sherlock without all the clutter of your remaining SRC files. Check the program site for more information.

I banned 'em after watching them a bit. Very unabtrusive, but banned none-the-less.

I'm seeing this on quite a few sites, couldn't it be something else? MacOS 8.5 is quite ancient, the program is 6 years old so it would suprise me if someone has started using it.

Also, it is a lot traffic/requests for just an user...

Forgot, but the fact that Sherlock and Holmes are running on different IP's should also point to something more professional...

The decision to ban was of course elementary

Interesting that after being banned they returned with the capitalization reversed. sherlock/1.0 and Holmes/1.0 then Sherlock/1.0 and holmes/1.0
