High Volumes of Traffic from one IP (Adcenter related?)

I've just banned an anonymous proxy after it queried my site continually for twelve hours. Now, there's nothing unusual about that. However, the pages are very similar to those I uploaded to MSN Adcenter yesterday morning.

I have had traffic from the IP before, although in smaller volumes but only since I started to experiment with the automatic uploading of ads to MSN Adcenter. The site in question is a motorsport news/forum site.

I highly doubt MSN would use an anonymous proxy to check pages, but seeing as I have now banned the IP address, I thought i'd bounce my thinking off more experienced users. What is it likely to be?
