how come Yahoo and Google are listed as active user in the forum?

just wondering :)

browse here

and look at the bottom of the forum, you’ll see Yahoo and Google

If you go to the member list and search for a member google… there are none…

When you see "google" in the active user list… this just means that google spider is indexing the forum at that time…

hmmn… that’s interesting. :)

what if a code a simple console app

that will "crawl" to this site,

what name will be displayed? :P

I guess the forum software recognizes the search engines… so in that case (custom crawler) it would treat it as a guest
