I recently made a thread about this in the Shout Box. I am also curious as to what's going on:

Most seem to be Yahoo search bots.

No, it's not miscounting.

The growth and popularity of this site is just unbelivable.

I noticed we just eclipsed 1000 members the other day, that's crazy.

This is THE place for Pacers talk.

Thanks to Hicks for concieving the idea of this place, and Able for hosting it.

There are over a thousand members? Doesn't it seem that you just talk to a few, that seems like the whole forum?

I have a site that was socked with 3000 hits in a single hour.

Turns out they all came from some gambling site - theory was that it was scouring for email addresses (looking for the '@' symbol) to add to spam lists. :mad:

yahoo bots, no worry, not all, lot of lurkers in reality to, but in this case most are yahoo bots, they read the pages for indexing, the bigger the site, the more bots.

If i get irritated by it I will simply block them, for the moment they are not hurting anybody.

What do they do that is annoying? Do they slow the site down?

I liked blaming it on Sassan a lot better. :devil:

Actually, that number was much higher a few weeks ago. Somehwere around 1,700. Admins must have wiped out a bunch of dormant accounts or seomthing.

Yes I did. The number was pretty, but I didn't want an over-inflated #, so I did some pruning.

I'm betting the high number of lurkers are from some women's study class trying to figure out why 30 men would go out together to talk basketball during baseball season.

The answer is simple. To get away from women.
