    First off, I don't know if this should be in off topic or the community information/ feedback.
    Second off, I noticed that in the "members online currently," the names are listed, and bellow is the total online, listing members, guests, and... robots. Why is this there? How do you track this? How do you determine if it's a guest or a robot? What kind of robots are these? Are they evil plotting-to-kill-everything robots, or spam bots, or AI's/programs gathering information? Possibly a Russian kinda thing?

    I've been mistaken for a certain super hero.

    It has been noted that Batman and I have never been seen in the same room at the same time.

    You didn't answer any of my questions, Devil Doc.
    You're leading me to believe that you yourself are a robot.

    A majority of the bots on this site are from search engines. Google, Bing, etc. have millions of bots crawling the web constantly adding new information to their database. That’s how they catalog and file all of that information that they show you when you search for “Service Academy Forums” in your search bar.

    Thanks to Stealth_81, absolutely no thanks at all to THParent, USMCGrunt, and Devil Doc.

    I still think it's the Terminator.
