Does anyone else find the current activities of guest users and members interesting to look at but also very odd or unusual? If you don't know what I'm talking about, first go to the main forum page in order to click on one of the lowest buttons in the page about how many guests and users are online. Then, notice that there are (probably) ONE THIRD of the users viewing other users' profiles. The vast majority of the profiles aren't even active, lol. Some have zero posts--how do they find such users? haha

I didn't even know that there was a 'print' option at the top right of each topic page. I thought it would help me print on paper, but it actually made the text and formatting very plain to be digitally copied and read easily--or whatever else. Another question: does anyone use this feature of the forums?

I just wanted to comment, again, on how there are a surprisingly large number of guests that check user profiles for no obvious reason, haha. 55 members online and it looks as though 20 of them are viewing profiles I would never have guessed would be viewed. I wonder why?

I guess bots have nothing better to do, eh? Maybe they're runaway Xsotan coming after our inactive users  :P

Just found a Post in General discussion that was a shameless copy of one of my Own posts.... just with a spooky Link in there...
Probably many of the users you saw are bots indeed...

Oh! I understand what you meant, now. I'll go to that post and edit my response, lol. That's very strange. What purpose does someone's bot serve in www.avorion.net ? Or a human that copies, what's their purpose? lol
