From what I can ascertain, they are computer programs for google, yahoo, etc. that document pages. (That's why when you use a search engine, you can click on the "cached" button on each search item and see a back-up page.) I THINK that's what they do. Tongue

Spot on.

They crawl pages and add them to their database so you can search the forums on google, yahoo etc. It's a good thing! Means more people can find our website Swim

They crawl all the pages, so it would just so happen that you were viewing the thread at the same moment they were crawling it Smile
