    They, along with googlebots and all the others you see from time to time, are web crawlers for the various search engines. They are not actual persons. They crawl through web sites (hence the slang, "spiders"), adding information to their search databases. TFF pages that are crawled today will show up in future web searches.

    Uh, I'm curious, what is a "yahoo slurpspider?" And how do you know if you have them?;) It sounds kind of ominous....

    Polish, if you have to ask, it's already too late. They've obviously already begun the assimilation process on you ...
  7. Polish, just think of the movie, "Night of the Living Dead" and you'll get it. :D

    Oops, sorry, Polish. It's too late for you. We lose more darn Polacks that way. :D ;) :p
