  1. What are robots (in the present activity count) ?
     
  2. From what I have gathered Sir is they are Automated crawlers for search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.
    Gathering data and add stuff.

    I am sure you will learn more by the end of the day.

  3. Thank you, Fish Catcher Jim. I understand, now.
    There's a lot going on that we don't worry or even know about.
    All blessings.

  5. I wouldn't be surprised at that, Cturtle. It's good to feel protected, but we must still watch and pray.

  7. Behind the scenes, we refer to them as 'Spybots'. They gather information by scanning most everything that is posted in the Forum in open posting areas. That is why we have a couple Rules (6.1a and 6.2a) in place, plus an unofficial advisory, to not post personal or confidential information in the forum or in a your profile. We take Forum and member security very seriously.

  8. Thank you, Pastor Gary. I understand this now, being semi-technical, but where do they come from ? Who put them there ? To whom do they report ? Google or Admin here ? Are they controlled and to what extent ?
    Thank you.
     
  9. The 'Spybots' or 'web crawlers', are owned by search engine companies. They are here 24/7 and DATA MINE open posts looking for keywords and concepts.

    You can read about them here:

    Thank you for the question.

    Blessings...
