Take a peek at this snippet from http://tailrank.com/robot "We attempt to use web standards as much as possible to find the feeds which exist on your site. Unfortunately, there are many websites that break web standards in ways which can confuse robots. We attempt to assert that your weblog software is configured correctly by requesting additional files." THAT is their answer to the Frequently Asked Question, "Why is TailRank requesting XML files that don't exist on my server?" That's right, they assume that my client MUST have a blog, and I was just too freaking stupid to put a link to it on my front page... so they're going to keep **guessing** until they find it. A question that does NOT appear in their FAQ is "Have you ever heard of robots.txt?" to which their answer would clearly have to be "Duh? No, what's that?" ARRRRRRRRRRRRGH.
