That would be anti-competitive behaviour.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible. -- Lawrence of Arabia

Does it do anything bad?

Besides logging the site for Bing searches? Are we assuming that anyone who uses Bing is a tool we don't want here?

I was merely in the mood for mob justice and Bing [Bot] was the first robot I saw.

the bingbot actually is disabled both within phpBBs bot management system and in our robots.txt file.

It WAS eating way to much bandwidth. There's another content scrapper in Ukrane I'm pissed at. Been limiting such stuff and have us denying clients based on realtime blacklists of kown malware ips now.
