PCbeaconbot-not infoseek. I wouldn't serve them your content, look at the site associated with this bot, and you can check things out from there. Search for the UA, I won't give them the courtesy of dropping their home url. Just use your favorite engine, and I'm sure you'll find what this one is about. Or I can email you in your stickymail, if you like.
Jack- This one still is a mystery to me, but I've yet to see any proof of it relating to infoseek. It's hit me from some isp IP's before, and I don't let it have anything...but have you found a connection to Infoseek? I'd be interested in checking that out.
The other UA seems right, though. Thanks for the heads up.
Domanova.co.uk is a very simple looking UK search engine producing pretty mediocre results. At this stage I'm not including it in my cloaking (well the spider is my db but disabled).
Likewise for pcbeacon.com which is a "business-to-business' directory.
The weird one is aesop.nb.no with "FAST" included in the UA which looks like it came of the Norwegian National Library (Nasjonal Biblioteket). I'm not serving this one cloaked content either.
