Re: Who are all these people ''viewing??
Members are not obliged to answer every post, many look at the posts to see if the subject interests them, if so they will reply.
Others are guests who are may be looking for a new forum which interests them before they sign up and join.
Many of the 'guests' are not humans, they are 'spiders' - web robots which scan the pages of sites on the internet..
Web Robots (also known as Web Wanderers, Crawlers, or Spiders), are programs that traverse the Web automatically. Search engines such as Google use them to index the web content, spammers use them to scan for email addresses, and they have many other uses.
Some of them are very useful because they help to make it possible for people to find us.
