I don't know what it is either but I've seen it (and it's yahoo counterpart) on other fora I'm on as well. I think Steve will be able to tell us more about it.

It's a spy-bot designed to allow Google to collect more information for its nefarious plans.

This is my theory, anyway.

It's how Google 'archive and index' every website in the world (they say).

Its how Google finds things when you type a search into it.

There are a number of preset allowed 'auto users' programmed into the forum software that allow them access (about 30 last time I was bothered to look).

I can go into admin control and stop them, but then no one would ever find us again!
