Another (possible) reason not to like Google Desktop

Posted on the ERIL listserv

Over the past month, we have received an increased number of notices concerning unusual spider activity. In most instances, we have found the Google Desktop Search with MSIE crawler installed on the machines associated with the blocked IP address. Are others experiencing this problem? If so, have you been able to resolve the conflict? I would appreciate any advice or suggestions.

Mostly I just don't like the idea of an organization that big knowing that much about me. But now it seems they might be an irritant to the community at large.
