  • I was bored and looking at the active users index and I notice that googlebot is printing a lot of political threads at the moment. Does that mean anything or is that just bot computer programming language stuff? It's kind of creepy to be honest, like the big guys are watching and documenting this forum...

    In regards to being a responsible man, would it be interesting to learn, after six years of accumulating all the wisdom you could, that you had it right all alon

  • Watch out. Vandeler would consider you a conspiracy theorist.  :tinfoil:

    But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil.

    Maybe it's a glitch.

  • Yeah, I have seen it say that GoogleBot and Yahoo! Slurp are posting even though they aren't. But as Lybus said, maybe it's a glitch.

  • Google, Yahoo ect bots aren't exactly smart enough to know that when you follow the "print" link, you're going to see the same thing. Those "print" pages are archived just like everything else and while the bot is on that page, the Active Users will say that GoogleBot is printing.

    Likewise, if the bot follows a PM link, the record will show that they're "using the messenger."

    As for guests posting, perhaps they're trying to do so unsuccessfully.
    "If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei ... that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum ...

  • What's really quite interesting is that GoogleBot, Yahoo! Slurp and MSNBot almost always seem to be online. I could maybe understand this if they posted, but they don't post. And really, I haven't even seen people who do post here online as often as they are.

  • You can "print" to PDF files, HTML files, etc.  Maybe it's easier for them to capture the essential data while ignoring all the ads, eye candy, etc.  Matthew will know for sure.
