    Default Spiders

    What are these spiders that are showing up as guest users under the "Who's Online" section?

    Are they bots that traverse the internet in order to record the name of threads so that they can be found using a search engine?

    A spider is a web crawler.

    If you're forever cleaning cobwebs, it's time to get rid of the spiders.

    Right, so the bots are indexing threads so that they can be found via a search engine.
