Second this !
Did you ever hear of the guy who wrote a C based 'bot trap
and brought down both a big name search engine mining bot,
and a providers (major) Unix server ?
He apparently didn't like the idea that the bot
had the right to mine his site for data.... and so,
a few lines of C, and Tada!
Deadlock, on endless nested directories.
Dueling Servers at Dawn !
He had to write a letter of apology to his service provider,
and to the search engine. I think it can still be found online
