    What's a "BOTS?"

    Excuse me for being stupid but in the "People On Line" section it shows:

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    Re: What's a "BOTS?"

    If I am not mistaken a "BOT" is a program that is ran in chat rooms and message boards the monitor language and other things. This is what I believe corrects any swear words that are typed to a more acceptable word.

    Or I could be wrong and it is a mechanical cajun bot that monitors the site to see when new posts are added and responds automatically with pre- typed responses as mentioned by AngloVike

    Nice try jaymz7! LOL
    I think you are right to a point but the number changes on the # of Bots all the time like it has something to do with visitors.

    I was wondering the same thing COJOMAY. I'm familiar with chat room "bots" but not message board "bots".

    A bot is a search engine spider, indexing content for their databases. Usually 1-4 on this site at all times it seems.
