In this case they are identified as IndigoSnipe.

There was a couple such Bots in a similar ip range.
That's good to know, I'll keep an eye out for that.
To answer your question, I rarely get browsed. It's probably the speed of my internet connection. But when I do I check it out and so far none have been from amazon users. The first thing I thought of when I seen amazon come up was video sharers (since they now have a service for their buyers club) This is new so I thought I should ask you. I get poor results on music searches when these guys take one of my ultrapeer spots, so I dump them. Lately the results in general have been poor but with your help I have staved off #6346 (my main nemesis for years). I think it might be a good idea if somewhere on the forum we might put a ball-park type list of types of peers for better music searches? For instance we could put CABOS as a bad peer and now maybe amazon? Just a thought.
