aipbot - www.aipbot.com

This bot or website spider has been sniffing around various sites, or rather snorting them down in copious amounts. It looks like this in the webserver logs (Apache):

GET /file.html HTTP/1.0" 200 12345 "-" "aipbot/1.0 (aipbot; 
http://www.aipbot.com; aipbot@aipbot.com)

The site www.aipbot.com is just a domain registry service's default catchall page with no information about the bot - grounds enough for a complete block of the IP address (currently 24.177.134.6). I don't have the time to experiment whether it will respect any entry in robots.txt.

The only other information available about this bot is from WebmasterWorld.com, which indicates the bot has also masqueraded under the name of abot.
