The scenario:

You set up a new website and are excited for the client to kick the tires. You check logs regularly, and see someone from the correct town hitting the site. But, it looks like they aren’t really sure what’s going on, and then send something that resembles someone fishing for an old exploit.

You talk to the client and mention it to them in passing, and it turns out they haven’t hit the site. So you email an abuse notification to the registration, and what comes back? A canned reply, it turns out to be the cyveillance bot “protecting and serving” by masquerading as a person. Hrrm. That earns a ban. Get some couth, cyveillance.
