Spam robots from Belize?

Here's a puzzle for you tech-savvy readers: The number of "visitors" to this site from Belize has soared recently — and I don't think it's coincidental that my junk e-mail has, too. How can I learn more about the following hosts?

  • 82.unused.zianet113.gwi.bz
  • 83.unused.zianet113.gwi.bz
  • 81.unused.zianet113.gwi.bz
  • wu-hispano-hispano.gwi.bz
  • wu-hispano-bigbyte.gwi.bz
  • 87.unused.zianet113.gwi.bz
  • 86.unused.zianet113.gwi.bz

    I could block the IP addresses for these sites, but I don't know what they are. Or do I simply have almost 750 pages of really great reading for the people of Belize? (If you're reading from Belize, drop me a line: I know nothing about your country!)

    I started getting these recently - this is a search engine spider for a place called "Gigablast"
    http://www.gigablast.com/spider.html
    It claims to support the robots.txt standard if you wanted to exclude it. They aren't located in Belize - just like the .cc addresses are not actually located on a tiny island in the pacific ocean that has no telephones, let alone internet access...

    Belize used to be known as British Honduras... it has no standing army.... it is a favorite for many retired Americans as the people there speak English instead of Spanish... I gather it is a pleasant place until/unless a hurricane comes through.
