Odd (at least to me)
« on: December 14, 2010, 06:04:13 PM »
This is a question that's puzzled me for a while now...

I've attached a current screenshot of "Who's Online".  As usual, there are a couple of Guest accounts shown as posting to "Read Me! Compiled board policies..."

This thread is locked, so how is it so frequently being posted to?
Guest accounts are read-only, I thought, so how are they posting to any thread?
This thread almost never has new content, so where are these posts going?

This is not a criticism in any way.  If this is the way things are supposed to be, I'm perfectly fine with it, of course.  But it is quite puzzling...

It's none other than the OC dot net Illuminati.  Remember how in George Orwell's book "Animal Farm" a few of the other animals would notice strange additions to the posted rules?  Coinkinkydink?  Methinks not.  :police:

Just spiders going about business; nothing to worry about.
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Whew, that's a relief :)

spider:
A program that automatically fetches Web pages. Spiders are used to feed pages to search engines. It's called a spider because it crawls over the Web. Another term for these programs is webcrawler.

Is it a fast-friendly, cheese-free pizza with meat-free sausage?  If so, no thanks.  Yuck.

Is there enough left over for the spider? He's been working hard and I assume is hungry too... :laugh:
