Subject OT: watch out for alexa.com robot
Date Sun, 16 Jan 2000 04:04:29 GMT
It is offtopic but somewhat relevant to a lot of people...

Just a FYI: alexa.com's robot is pathologically stupid.  It pounds on
servers as hard as it possibly can; over the past few days, it has been
pounding on one site I've been doing some stuff on at a rate of ~2 million
hits per day.  I don't know where they get away thinking that sort of
thing is acceptable, but be warned...

Obviously, they are no longer welcome at that site.
