does anyone know what the slurp spider is doing? it seems to be multiplying and eating bandwidth, but what is it actually doing? Is it a case of bad programming?, the slurp spider doesn't seem to know that other slurp spiders are on the same site. Is it 'skynet' by another name? Is yahoo are trying to develop a virtual internet, so that if you find a page with their search engine, you surf yahoo's cache without ever visiting the actual site. They would supply the adverts. At what point does the slurp spider activity become illegal, with the theft of bandwidth?
