This is somewhat off-topic, but I know some other people on this list
have similar services that may be being abused.
I noticed in the logs for my XML checker numerous, regular, entries
tide74.microsoft.com - - [24/Aug/1999:10:17:46 +0100] "GET /%7Erichard/xml-
HTTP/1.0" 200 417
What seems to be happening is that someone is using the checker to
fetch advertising pages which they presumably get paid for accesses to.
I've mailed firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, but have had
only pro forma replies from Microsoft and nothing from Clicktrade.
I'll be adding some filtering to my cgi script; other people with
web pages that fetch arbitrary URLs may want to do the same.
