live.com is sending fake visits to most websites with fake keywords, to check for cloaks. This is stupid and fakes web analytics data, lots of users think "Ohhh live is sending me visitors, finally!". But really microsoft is spamming... Lots of people are complaining about this on the web.
We have to block these Ips ranges:

Excluding spam access is a good thing . But, I think a better way could be found than launching an Exception. Actualy stats are ok but error logs is full of dummy things : (Uncaught exception 'Exception' with message 'Spam Live bot, go away, you're making me cry')...

Just exiting without any Exception will be a better way I think. After all, it is not a piwik error...

I suspect Bing to do the same thing...
