do they have permission to trawl this site.
do they have access to the PM board.
have they got our e-mail address,that's given as a mark of trust between the user and the owner.or are they sold to other websites for spam uses.

a lot of sites i use don't have these surrogate users affiliated to them.
just in case they mis-use the trust.

Hmm... I not 100% sure, but I think they only have access to the forum posts.

You'll need to ask one of the site's admins for a defo answer...

Hi Darren !

These "bots" should just be able to pick up the threads as far as I know...
You know - they index pages with key words and helps attract people to the site - for example, if someone might be looking for a special track and you had it in one of your shows, if indexed correctly then the user should get the Forum thread in his search result.
So - the "bots" should be harmless and they were around the old Forum as well - just that the program didn't show them back then.

So all should be cool !

To answer your question, yes Pete is no longer a moderator here. :(
