And what does it want? It's always appearing in the members present list, but it's text is different than everyone elses.

It's the Google searching engine....crawling through our public posts so when someone types into google: "Just What the Hell is GoogleBot by God is my Goldfish", they find this exact thread.

:D

It can only see the public forums, right?

I guess so...but if someone who wasn't a team member tried to click on any link to a private board, they wouldn't be able to see it.

Why should it see more? The googlebot is certainly a normal public member as seen from the forum software.

I just tested it and it can't see enything else. Would have been strange though if it were otherwise. :)
