I have no clue why this thing crawls except to get curious webmasters to go to their website as it has no real purpose best I can tell.

Good heavens, Bill, even I block Hetzner (176.9). Notes say "too many robots to track".

If you've got a robot that will cure cancer and end world hunger, better find it a home somewhere else ;)

So do I, this is from my bounced bots report.

Just because I bounce them doesn't mean I'm not curious what they do.

I got tired of bouncing them. I just block them now.

Bounce vs. block?

Please explain ;)

In my vernacular, the term "bounce" refers to bouncing the requests from one server to a separate (usually remote) server using a variety of methods including forwarding techniques.

"Block" would refer to a simple deny, using any method of choice and not bouncing the request anywhere else.

However my statement was more an attempt at humor than a strategic contribution.
