It is quite possible that I am paranoid...but when I scroll down to the bottom of the page to see who is online I see all of these "guests" All of these people who can read what I have to say without ever saying a word, seems kind of like a stalker or at least a peeper glad I don't strip in that pic I posted

Has anyone else thought about this?

Yes, they are guest users who are reading the forums over the past 10 minutes or so. Some of them are also robots which crawl the site.

Many terms are used to label the software programs used to index websites. Most refer to them as web crawlers, web robots, webbots, or spiders. Web crawlers, robots, and spiders are used by many companies to retrieve information about your website. They are often automated and are programmed to simply follow hyperlinks throughout the web. Search engines are the most well known users of spiders, but others use them as well. All in all, crawlers, robots and spiders make up a significant number of the "website visitors" for a well established site.

The Google robot, known as Googlebot, will visit a well established site several times a day to check for updates. Of all the spiders who traverse the sites for which we have web log access, Googlebot is by far the most active, on average around twice as active as the Yahoo! crawler and six times more active than the new msnbot spider. On their website, Google refers to Googlebot as "Google's web crawler" and as "Google's web-crawling robot."

Nothing wrong with being a little paranoid. I actually think its healthy. Keeps one on ones toes, so to speak.

Possibly there are some folk who are too shy to register here and post[I used to be that way myself]

Manda ... lots of times the guests are on the other part of the site, not here at the forums. This site is quite large and lots of the visitors don't even come to this part. And as Missile said, often people will hang out and read the posts before they bother to join. I've done that at other forums to see if I want to go to the trouble.

That's no fun at all Cosmo. I prefer to think that we're being monitored by aliens or Soviet spies that have been forgotten in a secret underground bunker and don't know the Cold War is over.

Speaking of that, Rev, don't you want to laugh when you see all those old movies where the bad guys are Soviet spies? What a joke!

a little paranoia is a smart thing in this day and age. One must keep a paranoid eye on the government to make sure they don't do anything nasty.

No, actually, I was thinking about some of the older James Bond films. But there were others. Now, if you watch them now, the bad guy isn't very convincing.

I learned long ago that it's best to throw memos away unread. If it's really important, somebody will phone.

A piece of advice, the little "Grey men" are not so cute and cuddly.

Why is it always the soviets that are spying on us peaceful Canadians. Personally I think its the Swiss. Nobody can be that neutral. I mean even the word 'Swiss' inspires awe and fear from the masses.
