What is this... It does this all the time. Are you toying with my head, or is Baidu very Norodo-happy?

Baidu is a horrifically vicious bot. Where Google might send two or three requests at a time, I've seen Baidu send 20.

Interestingly, because of default Bad Behaviour checks, Baidu is actually currently blocked, and I'm honestly not sure whether I should change that or not - and I'm more inclined not to change it for the most part.

It's because Wedge will not be released in English. Its language strings are from now on hardcoded to Mandarin. Did we forget to tell you? China is the biggest market now.
Oh and because ie6 is the leading browser in China, I've dropped compatibility with other browsers. Standards are too annoying to follow.

Protip: examine the HTTP headers.

If there's no Accept header, chances are it's a dodgy request - or it's Baidu.

Ok Baidu. I think you've seen all there is to see by now.
