What Is Its A Pic Web Crawler About?

I notice that a new web crawler, its a pic dot com, is pulling message posts repeatedly from my SMF forums. Every hour pulling data at a rate 2 times my normal daily traffic. (I submitted a ticket to support already).

 

It looks like it changes the message every minute. (Pulling the same message about 20 times per minute.

 

I don't know if anyone else is experiencing the same issue or not but a quick look at my bandwidth report was a shocker.

 

Does anyone have any info about this thing?

You could try contacting the owner of the crawler if it's misbehaving:

 

http://itsapic.com/crawler.html

 

itsapic.com crawler is designed to respect the robots.txt exclusion directives and META robots tags, and collect material at a measured, adaptive pace unlikely to disrupt normal website activity.

 

Our crawler identification includes itsapic.com_crawler.

 

If you notice our crawler behaving poorly please send us email at the address as indicated in crawler identification string.
