Sorry to barge in like this but I don't think you guys are making any
headway.

WebExpertsAmerica,

If you check the IP address on http://www.checkdomain.com, you will see that
the IP address 70.30.209.252 is managed by Rogers Cable of Toronto. To make
it easy, click on the following link:

http://www.checkdomain.com/cgi-bin/checkdomain.pl?domain=70.30.209.252

Unfortunately, I must have deleted your first e-mail and I don't remember
how you figured out the machine lives at the University of Washington. From
what I can see, the machine that is attacking you is likely in Toronto.

In any case, my web server has been attacked before (not by a machine
pretending to be a nutch-agent) and the way to eventually stop it is to send
an e-mail with your web logs to the abuse e-mail address of the company that
manages the IP address. In your case, I advise that you send an e-mail to
abuse@rogers.com. You can see this e-mail address by clicking on the second
link above and then by clicking on the link "NET-70-30-209-1".

In your e-mail, specify the IP address that is the source of the attack,
include your web logs, making sure the logs clearly show the IP address
70.30.209.252 is the source of the attacks. You will likely get an automated
response and eventually (it could take a week or more) the attacks will
cease.

Good luck -- hopefully, this will end the attacks on your web server.

Richard

With all due respect, who the hell are you? 

Why is a Canadian emailing us about a server located at UW?

Why is a UW webserver configured with Nutch (or aliased as Nutch)
ignoring our robots.txt file.

Something smells...

Best Regards,

Web Experts America
