  • Unusual guest activity

    I was wondering if this seems abnormal. I have had two experiences where large number of guests come onto my board. I am talking like 30 guests at a time...all with the same IPaddress. Each "guest" is in a different part of the site. I don't get how that could happen. From the IP locator I use they are all from the same area in Union New york. I am sure one person does not have 30 windows open at the same time???

    It's a search engine spidering your forums.

      But I have spiders show up as spiders..these are showing as guests. Are not all spiders visible as such?

        Because they are not listed in includes/xml/spiders_vbulletin.xml.
