there is an AlkalineBOT running in a hosts address space but no one at the host seems to know why. in email conversation with them, they stated that the ip that the bot is running from has been assigned to one of their clients. due to privacy concerns, they won't say who that is. i fully understand and respect this. all i want to know is what the data scanned by that bot is being used for and if i can access it. i wonder if a silent redirect to goatse would get their attention ;)

Doesn't it look like a pink rabbit beating a big drum?

If I remember correctly, Alkaline is searchengine software. It is a closed source product and someone may be preparing a search engine.
