The users with this colour are web robots/spiders/crawlers. These are automated agents most commonly used by search engines. They check the content of pages and index them in the search engine database. Google [Bot] and Yahoo [Bot] are the web robots for the Google and Yahoo search engines.

Thank-you, admin, for the definition.

Yes, cave...definitely CREEPY!

I was interested since I read/heard somewhere that [bots] , in some cases, were responsible for identity theft.
