log spam from Microsoft

I seem to be getting a lot of log spam from Microsoft. Typical entry has a
referrer of
"http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=seminar&form=QBHP" and with a Microsoft
IP. The common factor is "form=QBHP". Since August 1, I have had 839 of these,
compared with 14 apparently legitimate search references from search.live.com
and 300 from the main Google search engine.

The effect is to mess up logs and statistics. Does anyone one know what the
purpose of this is?
