Had a few interesting hits from a rackspace range.

twice requested a page that was very very old and 301'd to the new version.

the best part was that the UA was simply n/a

so the question is should the whole range be blocked?

Rhetorical question:

Has anyone ever had a visit from a rackspace range that was good and deserving and did not merit an instant 403?

See the sticky posting at the top of this forum for a full-ish rackspace list.

Can't say I've ever seen legit bots from their ranges.

Whoops! I assumed that when the moderators came by and snipped the spam post I was responding to, they would snip the response too. It was a couplet (browser history says "But found no cure, the bath for my help lies. / Where Cupid got new fire; my mistress' eyes.") followed by a clutch of links.

Ah. I assume from that there was a spam preceding your sonnet. Fair enough. :)
