seeing, at randoms times throughout the day or night, a big stack
of AOL IPs hitting our site simultaneously. It's like an AOLbot is
using a different IP for every page it visits. It happens every day
multiple times per day. 20-30 AOL IPs, sometimes more, will show up
for a few minutes, all coming and going at precisely the same time.
Does anyone have an idea of what's going on? Googlebot, Slurp, and
MSNbot come daily but typically only use 1-3 IPs per visit.
It's not a problem traffic or bandwidth-wise, but it seriously
skews our traffic figures, especially when we get 300 AOL IP visits
