What is IDBot?

IDBot is a bot for the website Id Search. Although they have an extensive page on what ID Search is and what IDBot is, this text is all they provide about their service. There is no way for users to query the data and there is no explanation as to what ID Search does with the collected data. They say that We are a research group, so we reserve the right to refuse collaboration with you to ourselves if your search purpose lies beyond the margins of our scientific interest. Instead of following the robots.txt protocol they ask users to email them in order to stop their crawler, they refuse to give out their IP addresses and ask for funds. In summary: ID Search uses a lot of text to explain noting and provides users with no information what so ever as to what IDBot does.
