    Call the Orkin Man

    Click on "Online Users" and you'll see tons of Spiders. Some from Yahoo, AskJeeves, MSN, etc.

    Yes, we invited one for tea, and the whole extended family showed up. Rude buggers.

    Unfortunately they are almost a necessary evil. We probably don't want to block all the Search Engines just to have the guests go away. Or do we....lol

    Nah, I know it's necessary. It's even welcome, we just wish they didn't hit SO hard as to have the site timeout. But that seems to have stopped for the moment

    hi jp,

    i thought we had 'em not showing in the online users list since they were really cluttering up the member's list.

    We did, but I had to enable them again so we could get a good idea of how hard the bots were hitting us. It's relevant. You can filter the return with the dropdown if you don't wish to see 'em
