In the "Who is browsing this forum" space, there are constant references to various "Bots".

I even saw a "Spider" once.

Can somebody explain just what this is all about :-?

Slan,

The invasion of arachnoform cyborgs is underway. Do not be alarmed. Please stay in your homes. Please ingest an intoxicating liquid. Do not question your new robot overlords.

These are just various search engines crawling and indexing the board. We can't figure out how to turn off their display. Yet.

the solution reminds me of my daughter-in-law's comment while visiting

"With carpeting you can't see the dust"

really, so much better that way, innit!

With practice one can learn to ignore things that are right in front of your face.

Hmm? Did you say something, Denny??

I was wondering about them myself...I didn't realise a bot could register, and then not even have a registration name. It's odd.
