That's the UA - EmailSearch

Did not read robots.txt.

Just hit the homepage, didn't follow any links.

IP is from GoDaddy 208.109.119.nnn

Did a few searches and didn't see anything obvious. Nothing under that ua on Godaddy's faq search.

Anyone know what's going on?

This line been in place for ever:

SetEnvIf User-Agent ^Email keep_out

It's included in every example of an htacess file that I've ever seen.

Done.

Any reason I should remove, I've just added, all of GoDaddy to the my hosting ip blocks.

IMO No!
Others may find it over-bearing.

As a matter of fact, I'd use any email address you can find from the service hosting the little bugger so they know he's spamming.

You guys are evil – love it.

Currently working on implementing incrediBILL’s suggestion about feeding back UA/IP/unique_id so I’ll probably add a few bogus e-mail addresses to that page. Maybe even some from spampoisn in this case.
