broke Inktomi floods?

Inktomi (now Yahoo!) sends it's spiders all over the Internet. Lately 
some of our systems are reporting that they open many HTTP connections 
to our web sites, without ever sending any data and immediately 
disconnecting. This is getting to a level where it disturbs us.

Is something broke over there? I can't seem to be able to reach them and 
this is becoming a real annoyance.

Anyone else observing this?
