Being "spied" on

So I was just going through my webalizer logs for one of my political sites when I noticed an ip being pretty active on my site so I did a reverse dns lookup and it had no records. So then I did a whois on the ip and get back:

UUNET Technologies, Inc. UUNET65 (NET-65-192-0-0-1) -
CYVEILLANCE UU-65-222-176-96-D6 (NET-65-222-176-96-1) -

Obviously the name Cyveillance immediately intrigued me, I came across the wikipedia article and a few others:

Anyone else having these cyveillance bots monitoring their sites and such?
