I just checked some of our projects and noted that ist just checking the headlines but does a deep crawl.

12 pages 65.54.xx against 1250 pages 207.46.xx

Can anybody confirm this?

I have not attempted to ban the MSN bot, but I see similar behavior. My logs show just one one-page visit by this month, but has accessed 149 pages since the beginning of August.

ADDED: I forgot to mention that the site does not show up in MSN Search results, in spite of frequent extensive visits over a couple of months. (No one here is likely to be surprised by this.)

I don't see either of those numbers mentioned in my logs and for what it's worth, these three (last two octets noted below) are responsible for 472 requests for pages this week alone.

.188.50 / .188.70 / .164.36

I do show up in search results.
