Just saw the list of active users:

Shouldn't that Google Bot be banned/blocked, or does it have some purpose?

I for one don't like Google watching my every move, they do too much of that already.

Those bots are for search engines.
Ex. Kramer, guitar, Floyd Rose, etc...

There’s a setting in the admin control panel to allow or deny spiders (bots) to search. You can also limit how long you let them search. Tony could also click one box and they would be hidden from the “who’s online” listing.

I allow them because to this day we get members of the old forum trickle back in thinking this is the same place. The Bots and spiders actually work for us in this case.

Of course I get spam email weekly from folks wanting to help improve or work for this site too....

Meh- you take the good with the bad.

So long as you post neither your email or phone numbers (keep that to PMs) you guys are no more/less safe here than any other place on the inter web.....
