Default Re: WebBot - just a thought...

The spyders you see, say the MSN bots, etc., are frequently what I call data archivers. As an example, when you google something and a link doesn't work, you can ask for a cached site. The spyders have gone through and cached the site.

I don't think clif has indicated exactly which forums have been excluded from his bots searches. I think he would be nutz to include avalon in the search, since we so often discuss the HPH works. JMHO. (And since I don't consider clif as nutz, I'm guessing we're out of the loop) -

That said, what he looks for is shifts in linguistics - literally language pattern shifts that mankind does unconsciously.

IMHO, it's pretty fascinating work - but I've always been fascinated by the human mind and how we express what/who we are through the words we use, or the things we discuss.

How come these spiders are on here and what is their purpose?

If anyone knows the answer to this any moderators, etc I would love to know the answer.
