They are true bots that are noticed by phpBB3. By identifying them, they are no longer included in the visitor count, so hopefully those figures will have more meaning in the future.

Questions and Queries have slowed down recently ever since those bots got interested... It'll start up again when Erwin gets a new version out!!
