    The Yahoo and MSN bots index your forums so your forums appear in their search engines. They have nothing to do with spam registrations.

    Bots / Spiders safe?

    On my site, i get alot of Yahoo! Slurp Spiders and alot of MSNBots. If i allow them, i get people all around the world registering and i get alot of people wanting to post porn and viagra links etc. Is this good to ban these search engines?

    My web site is a Northern Ontario trading post and i only allow new members from my region
