Just curious ...

In the WHO'S ONLINE (http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/online.php?order=asc&sort=username&pp=50&page=1) thread a couple of these are showing up: MSNBot Spider

Also these guys: Yahoo! Slurp Spider and Google Spider

What's that about?

Insulting other members is generally (http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showpost.php?p=308994&postcount=4) discouraged: even when done in a back stabbing, sneeky, weasel way.
As here it is obvious (to me anyway) who you are referencing.

I will be monitoring your posts like a spiderbot, and an infraction will be issued if I even suspect you are being rude to another member.

You are posting "trouble making" (and have done so continually in the past) & nasty comments, and I truly wish you would take up residence at somewhere else on the web: vet membership notwithstanding.
