ru_com_viewer larbin2.6.3@unspecified.mail

Seeing a new bot in the logs: ru_com_viewer

I can only guess that this is something that fetches pages for viewing by Russian users based on "ru" but that's only a guess.

This bot is using the larbin web crawler.

We'll see if they obey robots.txt or not.
