Yahoo shopping crawler UA is:
YahooSeeker/1.0 (compatible; Mozilla 4.0; MSIE 5.5; h*tp://help.yahoo.com/help/us/shop/merchant/)
It's unbelievably rude! It was doing nothing but trying to get images that don't even exist on our server, several a second from several diff. ip's. I got it banned in .htaccess, then 4 hours later it started again - only this time it was:
libwww-perl/5.69 from feed21.shop.corp.yahoo.com (126.96.36.199).
Does anyone know a phone number for these people? It's eating up our bandwidth like crazy.
