I was under the impression that most internet stat trackers were trained to recognize bots. Legitimate ones from the major search engines, anyway.

Probably, since the only bots I've seen were from Yahoo and Google

Well, SMF didn't. I never knew if people were really looking at the board or if it was just a bunch of bots. I guess it's been a while since I was on a PhpBB.

I always feel a little bit insecure when a bot's around, cause I know they're probably reading everything more thoroughly than I am.

There's a joke about Star Control fans being real yahoos in here somewhere, but I can't be bothered to make something of it.
