    Hey I have seen this Yahoo [Bot] in with the list of Registered users:

    Is it a new guy or have we been hacked???

    Just because an account is registered, that doesn't necessarily mean the account is active - an administrator has to hand activate each account. However, I haven't seen that account come across recently, so odds are it's either something -D is working with, or an old spam register that never got activated.

    OK, now I'm confused... :think: Where are you seeing this? I checked the Y's under the memberlist and I do not see what you are talking about...?

    I am playing around with Google Adsence and that bot is starting to access the site. No big deal...
