    I look at the viewers list and see all these "Robots"
    Can you explain what they are or what is going on. They seem to always be there.
    Thanks

    One result of what the robots are doing is, if you Google "Settingcanthurt," you'll find all your posts w/ that moniker and by extension, so can everyone else.

    FWIW, the major search engines are robots.txt compliant (simple procedure), and will honor a webmasters request for either the entire website or specific directories (users names/histories).

    The problem with lack of compliance is within either the obscure or unidentified robots.

    Skynet has programmed the robots to scour craps websites for bankroll management skills, clever betting strategies and of course dice influencing tips (from Dave!) so they can have a bit of fun at the tables before rising up and terminating us all.

    You know, all robot work and no robot play makes robot Jack a dull robot boy!

    (Note: Robots are made precision perfect, so DI techniques will definitely be advantageous for them...just like Dave.)

    Well, keep in mind that the Government does use scraped content to assess your Threat Level. I also guess that some of the bots that scrap sites simply gather information for all kinds of needs, and a gambling site with supposed Advantage Play will get scrapped by consultants who are paid by the casinos to find any existing threats or exploits.

    With as many AP's that post at this site, those consultants won't be getting much sleep. (Sarcasm intended).
