2 out of 3 visits from Bing to my web sites appear to be fake.

The IP addresses are all registered to MSN (65.55.**.**), and the search term in the query are all high-volume one-word terms that have nothing to do with my web sites.

Anybody else experiencing this phenomena? Do you think it's actually Bing or some kind of third party spoof?

Do you still see this as a problem?

Nope, looks like they stopped - none in the last 3 days, anyhow...
