Block Microsofts bizzare spider (makes SPY useless)I have a list of over 100 "blocked" ips, but that's not enought, Microsofts bizarre spider (always comes from live.com and searches for keywords in my posts - and indicates an User agent IE6) This is a spider no doubt.
The spider renders live view meaningless as I only have those in there.
How to block them, you don't allow me more then 100

I've noticed the same problem. Also, it's always from "Microsoft Corp".

I've been wondering about these... perhaps this is driving up the Live search numbers vs. Google and Yahoo?

I suppose it's part of a new way to spider. Anyways I need a way to filter these out. Please clicky team.

Ditto, they search on useless key words

I'll probably manually block these searches in the future. Agree they're annoying. They pollute our stats too. I don't know why they do it. Just makes Microsoft look like a bunch of amateur jackasses.

Good news everyone, I just implemented some code that should completely block this bot from showing up anymore in your stats. Unless the IP addresses change in the future.
