A Source of the Spambots!?
Well, if you look down in the users online section, you can see that there's a thing that says "GoogleBot". Now, this is just a guess, but what if people sent spambots from google to destroy us D:?

I have some doubt.......some.
but still, what reason would Google have to destroy us?
actually, the person who draws the logos for Google, is quite the fan of the Zelda series.

I also doubt it slightly. Some may be coming from Google, but I think that bot is more for getting advertisement material. It's best to not try to track the bots, after all they're simply advertisements/trolls. Better to just get rid of them and move on.

Also, nice addition to your siggy Bio. That bot was EPIC FAIL. xD

This googlebot you see on is actually a robot that crawls our entire website so we can be found on google! This is one of the few bots that we actually want visiting this site ^^

Doesn't it follow users around as well or something?

Hahaha google does seem to enjoy other peoples privacy sometimes Wink And no it wouldn't follow users around I don't imagine, but if you were posting a new topic or something and the google bot was on the forums at the same time then it is very possible that it would end up in your thread!
