    Boring answer... that is typically search engine crawlers indexing the board. Google, Bing, etc.
    Fun answer... no that is an alien searching the board for information regarding Area 51 tours.

    Robots don't fish. It was part of the settlement of their age old rivalry with pirates.

    Autobots, Roll Out!

    That's what I envision each time I see the robots number.
    Perhaps I need to get out more! :rolleyes:

    Thanks everybody for your replies, yes that makes sense even to me. The robots are the things that keep putting the same ads for rooms etc, on any site l go to. GRRRRR.

    Actually, that is the cookies on your computer. I prefer my cookies on a plate with a glass of milk though.
