Bot amusment

Post by Flaming » Mon May 12, 2014 2:20 am

If you look on whos online, you will often see bots. There are bing bots, google bots, baidu bots, and rarely msn bots.

If you click on whos online however, you will find out what the bots are looking at! :P

For example: (Times are -5)

Bing [Bot]

Spying on a bot is fun. 8-)

Is the chinese search engine baidu accualy a drunkard?

I got minimal amusment when i saw this, hence the topic name.

Haha lol! That's interesting :DDDD

Well I guess the bots don't wanna get spied so maybe Scott should do something about this? (the bots should search the forum completely anonymous)

They are the color of devlopers. Grey.

Tsk Tsk those bots are always sharing personal info. We should ask for thier house. They will fall for it.

The bots accounts are built into phpBB (our forum software).
It is useful to have them recognized because this way they are served an optimized version of the page which help lower the cpu and data consumption of our server.
