If there's a specific signature of the bot that you're having problems with (a specific domain, or an identifiable user-agent), look into configuring your webserver to send them alternative content.

Back when it was easy to identify e-mail harvesters, I'd send them to a CGI that slowly feeds them bogus e-mail addresses and the abuse address from the netblock they're coming from. These days, most harvesters are coming from botnets, so the abuse one isn't so useful. (and yes, it _is_ a Perl script)

[stevieb]: I don't know what you mean. I write the code in C/C++ that accesses the ICs per the datasheet, wrap it for Perl, then use them. My code ensures that the functions/methods from Perl do the right thing for the chips/sensors etc
[stevieb]: At least that's what I'm working on right now. I've also been updating my automated test software Test::BrewBuild so it handles this work properly. It's not really easy meshing high level languages with low-level hardware :)
