Okay...

It has been extremely noticably lately that there have been alot of guests. Infact there is always atleast 10 or so on the site at any one time. I assure you this is not because our big secret is out, or because people are interested in the site.

These guests are infact some sort of mean search engine bot which just happens to have rested on our site. Using my special Admin X-ray Googles I got with my comic book I can tell you two things.

1. They are all from the same place.
2. They are extremely annoying because they clog up the Who Is Online page.

This particular breed has been randomly searching the site, cluttering up the WhoIs list for a few days now and never seems to sleep, eat or go away. This is why when you look at the Who Is Online page you notice alot of guests appear to be doing something they shouldn't be, reporting posts, moderating duties, reading private forums and so forth.

I've tried fruitlessly to contact Danny over MSN about it and see what he has to say but like I said - fruitlessly. So I hope he sees this, looks at the WhoIs Page, posts here with a reply, then does something mean to the server who is scanning our site - like calling it names and cursing it with a wierd voo-doo dance.

Yes, however it wasn't untill I was admin that I noticed and could confirm they were all the same.

Inktomi is a Yahoo company. It is very likely that Yahoo is spidering so heavily for their Google-offense.

Is there anyway we can stop them, like by.... say... stabbing the CEO in the face?

violence solves all problems
if you use violence and it doesn't work then you aren't using enough
