Orginaly the bot was detected scanning the site using a fake useragent. This was reported to cogentco.com who sent back a canned reply that this was a nice bot and followed robots file.
My orginal request for info on who ran the bot and why it was faking a useragent of a browser were ignored.
I replied back to abuse and asked if cogentco.com owned this bot and why it was using a fake useragent if it was a nice bot. But my questions were ignored and all I got back was the same canned reply.
cogentco.com knows about this bot, allows it to operate, hides the idenity of its owner and ignores complaints about it.
This bot was built by www.panscient.com it is unclear if they own it.
At Panscient Technologies we design, build and operate custom internet search engines that unlock the hidden structure of web data.
Using state of the art AI technology, Panscient Technologies' software analyzes web sites for their information content and compiles the data into a searchable index.
Yea right state of the art scrapping.
At this time it is unclear who else uses this bot because its stealth.
