    How does BuickV8 know how many robots are here with us?

    What is the purpose of a robot account? Is this big brother? OR big corporation spying on us? :confused: Thanks for asking the question Anson.

    Basically they are web crawlers that search the forum, then when someone does a search for a particular topic or item, the browser uses an algorithm that provides links to the most likely results.

    Thanks, now that makes a little more sense to me, I wondered how info was retrieved so quickly off the web from a post placed on the Buick V-8 page. o_O Larry.
