To better track which bots are visiting your site.

But the "Contributions Details" tab says: "This mod will add 100+ bots automatically to your forum".

Since I just got rid of a bunch of spam bots, why should I add 100+ more?

...Or is the tab description wrong?

The tab description is correct. You're confusing spambots with search engine spiders/bots. The bots that this MOD adds (presumably -- I haven't looked at them) are search bots and good tools, not spambots.

P.S. Two months to reply? :shock:

1. Sorry about the tardiness of my responses! :oops:

2. Search engine bots I can use. So, I'm going to install the mod.

Thanks!
