I always see bots signed in here. How come they never post?

They index the site for their own particular search engine. If you search for something on Google or Bing or whatever it will have the latest info.

IT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS WHAT THE BOTS DO! YOU NEED TO STOP QUESTIONING THE BOTS!!! Um, I mean, because they are indexing all the time.

I can't help but notice that Calvin hasn't aged at all according to his avatar, which I would assume to be an accurate and current portrayal; so based on that data I have to conclude that Calvin is either a Bot, a vampire baby, dead or a small town in Sweden.

He sure is acting weird all of a sudden....

Say what you want about me, but not the bots.

That's amazing! That's exactly how I thought the internet would look!

I always thought those were carrots.
What the hell?
Does that mean that these are viruses?

What's a bot like you doing in a site like this?

Like Mikey has pointed out on many an occasion, it is actual humans that are the worst problem. There are people who have nothing better to do, with no concern about how you feel about your forum, who will do anything for the fifty bucks and come here and type all that shit over and over. So a spam bot trap is not really going to work with them. Finding out where they live and putting them out of their misery is the only solution.


          :shock: :roll: :mrgreen:

Yes! Get their mailing addresses and mail them a virus.

Imagine one of these suckers leaping out of a UPS package and latching on to your carotid artery...

I like the idea of rabbits being viruses. I think any Australians here would recognise the damage they can do. :wink:

Yes, well, unfortunately a rabbit proof fence won't work on the internet.
