    There viewing the postings.php file, though theyre not actually doing anything they will be getting the Please Login form.

    You have to remember that vBulletin looks at the file they are viewing, it doesn't determine if they have actually have permission to do when showing their location. If they are viewing forumdisplay.php?forumid=6 and forumid 6 is a private forum it will still say in the who's online that they are browsing this forum but all the guest is seeing is the error_nopermission page.

            The majority of spiders obey this but then you get bad spiders whicih do what they want and ignore your robots.txt file. Though the majority do comply with this.
