  Second this !


  Did you ever hear of the guy who wrote a C based 'bot trap
  and brought down both a big name search engine mining bot, 
  and a providers (major) Unix server ?

  He apparently didn't like the idea that the  bot
 had the right to mine his site for data.... and so, 
 a few lines of C, and Tada!

 Deadlock, on endless nested directories.

 Dueling Servers at Dawn !

  He had to write a letter of apology to his service provider,
 and to the search engine. I think it can still be found online

These last few lines are a trap for address-harvesting spambots.
