A couple of times I have seen Google[Bot] listed as a registered user when I've been on the forum. Anyone know what that is?

When you install these forums, it has a default user (anonymous), and a bout 40 others that are Bots (spiders, crawlers) for various search engines like Yahoo, MSN, Google, etc. They crawl the content and hyperindex it. They are allowed to be here. They can only READ stuff, though, not post.
