Here's a wacky theory ... maybe your current IP addy belonged to another
entity back in the day (however long that is)? So either
1) These are people/bots who saved the page reference by an IP addy (which
can happen when web servers redirect to another host ID'd only
2) These same people/bots are referencing the page from a link that badly
needs to be updated
3) These people are in bad need of a DNS cache refresh (unlikely given the
AOL entries, unless that's their Webcrawler)
