What does "GET [yahoo.com...] even do? I don't have a link to yahoo on my page anywhere. Also this is the only thing that IP has done, just scattered one-liners about yahoo. Any thoughts? It's very similar to the still-persistent bugger mentioned in the [webmasterworld.com...] thread.

Does that IP belong to your host? Just a guess -- maybe the script doing this is on your server or someone outside is using your server to run scripts?
BlueSky can you explain a little more what this could be. I run no scrips on my site so now I'm curious. Thanks,
You can be sure of this, if you'd like, by writing a script that calls your machine and requests yahoo.
Something /is/ being returned, hence the 200, though.
jdMorgan and wkitty42 attack a similar issue here: [webmasterworld.com...]
thought I could go off and do some real work today but you've alerted me to something else I need to go learn. Some days I feel like my computer illiterate friend who tells me repeatedly that this "net stuff" and computers are never going to last.
Sometimes .... on days like this, I wish he was right ;)
And here's hoping the Chinese totalitarianism falls and they'll be free to surf all the pr0n and political forums they want. :)
So apparently they're just Chinese open-proxy checks, and do not necessarily indicate that you HAVE an open proxy.
