And I've got thousands of them as well. Wich only means that a *lot* of applications/people
are fetching /index.html from my server. The only bad effect I've seen from this is that is
can make the statistiscs miselading when you don't sue name based virtual hosts.

If you want to stop all thsoe requests from screwing with teh statistics you cout create some
rewrite rules to have them return "forbidden" in stead of your root index file.
