    They're automated web-surfing machines which crawl (hence the name spider) the site for it's content which is then sorted and stored in the relevant search engine's database.

    There's more than one about...

    and I would guess they are to be encouraged if you want your topics harvested for search engines to bring hits to the site...

    I found an MSN spider this morning, but the screenie I took was not scrolled to end of user list so did not show it - it was browing the forums index anyways...

    [EDIT] caught the spider this time [/EDIT]
