    Default What's with All the 'guests'?

    I checked to see who's online tonight, and there were a few posters and a HUGE list of guests!

    What's with that? Are they new people here who haven't joined up? Or are they oldies who just haven't ever posted?

    Would be mostly bots trawling the forum ( and a couple of guests )
    Admins and Mods can see the IP's that are not visible to members..

    example of what a mod can see.,

    I went into a lot of forums as a guest (able to viw pages but not post) to find answers for a bird problem I had, then with pancreatitis with Shadow. Google throws up posts in forums that pertain to key words you put in as well as websites, blogs etc.

    Admin on 2 forums, Mod on another, and just a everyday pleb on about 6.... That's too many if you ask me.. This forum is a favorite one so I visit more often !!
    My other favorite is Little Gurus (Admin).. Mostly people interested in the WWW and also like to have a bet on lotto as a syndicate..
    I once was a hidden Mod on a ISP forum when my wife worked for the ISP as a manager. The ISP was based in Brisbane and has now moved to Perth..

    bit by bit, people learn more about me !!!
