Microsoft/Bing at it again?I'm getting a lot of traffic from 207.46.193.* Clicky has been marking it as Microsoft. This looks like a spider, as their flow through my website is very erratic.
Anybody else seeing this?

Thanks for the heads up. That's definitely a bot. I've black listed that subnet so it will no longer be tracked.

I'm getting hits from several other blocks in the 207.46.*.* range. I've added 207.46.195.* to my IP filters but now I'm showing hits from 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11
Is it possible to just block the whole 18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124 range? All of it is assigned to Microsoft.

I will of course do that, but I need some kind of "proof" that it does indeed all belong to MS and in particular their search efforts. We are already blocking 2 "class B" networks from Microsoft but only because I could find something that told me for 100% certain it was only search engine IPs. I mean it certainly looks that way, I just don't want to block legitimate traffic.
