I do hope they're harmless and don't bite or yank off some toes if stepped on. That would hurt something fierce.
Please excuse my ignorance here, but why do we have botts following or viewing our posts? Do they actually take note of our discussions? The botts in question are the bing and google ones.
Anyone can go on any forum on the internet and read posts/replies. But, to post/reply to a Thread, a person has to become a member of that forum. I would have no idea how to stop people from viewing any Thread on any forum.
Forums on the internet are not Private, but there are forums where a person can send a private message, within the forum or thru a members listed e-mail address.
So, bottom line is..........anyone can see anything Thread and posting/replay that any member does.
First, welcome to the forum. I am going to merge this with a couple of other threads, and I think you'll have the answer there. The bots are search engine spiders that index the discussions here for the sake of those who are looking for something we're discussing here on a search engine, like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, or another.
For the past couple of months, we have regularly been spidered by Brandwatch, which is a service intended to let manufacturers and retailers know what people are saying about their brand. So, your complaints or compliments about whatever it is that you're commenting on are getting notice beyond that of other forum members.
Do you think they will see my post about the Goredi mini-cycle pedal exerciser? And that I think I will like it?
Good. Then QVC will realize they shouldn't have sent out defective Spurtles.
