Currently, straight out of my logs... - - [05/Aug/2010:15:45:09 -0700] "GET /dir/filename.html HTTP/1.1" 403 1468 "-" "-"

No UA, no robots.txt, no REF, no nothing. Not once. Not twice. Not even three times. Try eleven.

Same poor file. All hits 403'd because no UA; also because bare MSN IP and not a bona fide MSN bot.
