Just curious: what are these "MSN Bots" that appear in the active users list?

Long story short, without bots you don't get any results for internet searches (google etc)

Ah. That's confusing, because I've been on websites that don't show bots in their user archives/active lists, and they appear in searches for MSN/Google, etc.

PHPBB3 is built to distinguish between bots and guests. It's advantageous to know how many genuine people actually visit. Other sites are behind the curve.
