    Why is Google spidering the

    user profiles? Aren't those pages marked?

    True. If you google your

    handle you're likely to find your user profile.

    Well, let's just say my user

    profile wasn't the first page that google brought up.

    Yeah, the forum is crawling with

    spiders today. Actually, I would make a rough guess that about 30% of the "guests" (visible in the "who's online"

    page) are in reality some sort of spider. At the moment the forum is only programed to show Google spiders, so with

    all the thousands of spiders (spambots etc) on the loose, you can imagine there are plenty. So, don't put

    anything into your profile area that you don't want spidered. If a human can click their way into something, so

    can spiders.
