Default Who (or what) is doing this to my server?


I run a script on my server to email me whenever someone generates a 404 so I can go fix it. When it's able to, the email includes the source of the 404 (ie, whatever caused it is on page thus-and-so).

I get a lot of emails telling me these are 404s:


and lots more I won't bother you with.

What is someone (I assume it's a spider) looking for? Is the plus sign some kinda special character that tells a system something, and I just don't know what it is? It's no big deal; it's just pesky having to delete all those things because there's nothing for me to fix (and thesource of the error isn't listed).

I'm just curious about this, that's all.
