Look under who's online.

EDIT: Nevermind, the bot is gone, but it said "Bots: Yahoo!" (Yahoo! being in red)

No they don't spam or post at all, they just browse. I'm really not sure why they appear, I can disable them, but I think they help with statistics.

It's not a person, just a search engine creeping around.

there are 2 kinds of bots - advertising and browsing.

browsing ones will just look around - like a guest Wink

Advertising bots will join, and advertise in the most populer forum Roll Eyes - like the ones which advertise on MCCP Haha

There can't be advertising bots here since you have to activate your e-mail to use the forum and we can add-on an image verification code, however their are search engine bots that appear when someone searches something in say Google or MSN and we're listed under what they're searching.
