Is the unobfuscated IP one of amazonaws.com's?

See also a few additional UA variations here:

Amazon AWS Hosts Bad Bots [webmasterworld.com...]

For example (seen last week); space before paren is in the original UA:

ec2-46-137-146-175.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com
SkimBot/1.0 (www.skimlinks.com )

robots.txt? Yes

Space is removed before paren in UA... but this message is a dupe report and should be deleted to avoid dupe threads.

Does the UA end in semicolon plus close-parenthesis? ;)

I could have prevented it but it was more fun not to.
