The Linguee Search Engine Bot Mystery

Please select playlist name from following

I kind of figured this out as I went but the traffic to 153news is crazy. As I was doing some maint on the site I noticed this Linguee bot drilling the backend. I first thought it was a government bot indexing us but as I look at linguee it appears they are some type of search engine for language translations. They have taken our search and are searching our site in real time and including the results somewhere. I am good with the traffic but they should at least ask us before drilling our box like this. So more to come when I find out whats up.

Currently I see about 10 or so projects that are mirroring this site. Lots of them dont actually give you a bot label but our box is super busy serving truth!
