    That's pretty much it. I can do a real quick look at who they are, but not all of their IPs resolve easily. Here is a quick and easy screen shot of who some of them are:

    That didn't work, standby.........

    That's how things get found on the 'net. The bots, spiders and crawler, etc. index what they find so the various search engines can find what we are looking for.

    Have you guys ever tried to find this place by a google search? I want to say I couldnt get there that way a few years back. I guess I don't understand exactly how a search command really works.

    Its like discovering the island of misfit toys. I am content remaining lost

    So I see we set a new record for non-participants snooping around - 503. My question is why we seem to see more web creepy crawlies now. Is it because there are more news aggregators or more search services? In other words did the likes of apple news spawn a whole new batch of "bots"?

    There are currently 767 users online. Y'all figure out how to charge trespassers and you would have a pretty nice little business here.

    I made some configuration changes this evening to block China and Hong Kong from the server. These have been the two largest bunch of outsiders you have noticed when viewing how many users are on line.
