Stymie RIAA / MPAA spider bots

`”Hiya,” says an email we received a couple of hours ago. We don’t usually open emails that start with Hiya. But this one looked a little different and, “I’m an open source developer and I’ve just finished a project I thought you might be interested in writing about,” it said —– a php script that, “generates fake apache directory indexes for the purpose of slowing, and overloading with false positives the RIAA/MPAA’s spider bots.”

Say no more : )’
