It appears that some of the queries are valid for an older site that existed in the past. That site was a wiki and some of the Giga hits are for internationalized versions of the default help/support pages. This is fine and acceptable behavior by them (IMHO). The fact that they are querying something that no longer exist is something I can deal with. The strangeness is that some of their crawling is looking for URLs with multiple exclamation points, those URLs never existed. This may be indicative of a character translation on my system or theirs. BUT, the net net is that I no longer feel a need to be concerned about them.

Thanks all,

What is And why is it constantly performing "questionable" queries (mostly http) across every IP that I have access to check.

Completewhois shows some listings in some RBLs, but not the more popular ones.
