Weird Referrals From Microsoft's Live Search?

A WebmasterWorld thread reports several webmasters finding weird referrers from Microsoft's Live Search.

I am getting thousands of hits where the items in my log show the referrer as follows; http://search.live.com/result.aspx?q=KEYWORD&mrt=en-us&FORM=LVSP

When I load the referred page then I am told that there are no results. Also there is no relationsfip between the keyword and the page requested. The Kkeywords are single words and seem to be mainly concerned with the normal spam areas.

The consistent item in all these referrals is the &FORM=LVSP portion of the URL.

Many of the referrals come for adult related keywords.

But when they try to view the referring URL, no information comes up, that would logically imply a referrer came from that page.
