RufusBot is a Dufus.

The so-called "rufus bot" is hitting us repeatedly again from this IP address: and the stupid thing is, it is requesting pages that do not exist on our server over and over again and getting Page Not Found errors and still continues to request the pages.

Either the person that wrote the RufusBot is a dufus, or as I suggested before there is an error related to 404 errors that present a security or hacker problem. I am not sure why else these bots would try to hit pages that do not exist repeatedly. I guess they could be that stupid, but I kind of doubt it.
