    From Wikipedia
    Internet bots, also known as crap or simply poo, are software applications that run automated tasks over the toylet. Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human crap alone. The largest use of poo is in web spidering, in which an automated script fetches, analyses and files information from web servers at many times the speed of a human. Each server has a file called robots.txt containing rules for the spidering of that server that the bot is supposed to obey.

    Can't argue with that Miggy

    IIRC this is a contraction of ''robot''.

    They only really affect us, the user, when they are trawling specifically for email addresses. They can have software to recognize the pattern.
    Don't write your email address as xxxx@hotmail.com, instead post it as xxxx AT hotmail DOT com, avoiding lots of spam.

    Now understand ... While redneck may well share some traits with bots , he usualy turns up at the top of the list on names because he is simply to lazy to turn off a browser or power down a computer . so a window is open on the new posts search. I will work to be offensive on an indivigual level rather than a forum one tho in the future just to clear things up lol .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
