Remember Cyveillance?

So occasionally I look through the traffic logs for my little site here and look for anomalies. I saw this entry: - - [23/Jan/2006:11:19:24 -0800] "GET 2006/01/magical-blogger-mood-ring_12.html HTTP/1.1" 200 15371 http://www.walkingsaint.com/2006/01/power-user.html" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows XP)"
Then I saw about 90 entries around that, all from the same IP address, looking at all the information on the site... but all spaced about a second apart.

Let me show you what it looks like when Google indexes my site: - - [23/Jan/2006:14:42:10 -0800] "GET 2006/01/spending-issues.html HTTP/1.1" 200 16104 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)"
Do you see the difference? Google identifies itself as an indexing bot. It tells you where to get more information and they adhere to bot-like standards such as the Robots Exclusion Standard. Cyveillance does NO such thing. They'll basically trespass on a site mining information and there's nothing you can do about it. Bastards.

Can anyone think of anything that can be done about this?
