Cowart's Common Room
A Bit Disconcerting!

I have just noticed that there are 53 users here online.

52 guests and 1 registered (the 1 registered is me obviously)

I'm not sure how I feel about this.

Fennie's Avatar KKC, I don't think these are real users but 'bots' that sweep the internet picking up casual mentions of this and that. Yes it is disconcerting but then the whole internet thingy is disconcerting. But is anything bad likely to come of it? Well, the price of pickled herring might go up in Mars and Spencer, or Minecraft shares might be bought by another bot programmed on behalf of some offshore investment trust to buy Minecraft shares or sell them according to the number of times Minecraft was mentioned on the internet that day. But I don't think you or I or any of us are being targeted either by humans or aliens.Very Happy

Faith's Avatar Thank God for that Fennie - but do you think these 'bots' can see our Private Forum?

Withy Brook's Avatar I believe they can’t but we cannot be too careful.

Fennie's Avatar To a 'bot' I guess we could look suspicious. We might be a far left or right political organisation or something to do with organised crime. When Faith writes about pigeons, that might be code for Bitcoin and when Camilla writes about her Patch, well he could be a look out man or a secret agent. And as for dolphins running round in schools who knows what nefarious activities they might be up to. Wink

KitKatCot's Avatar I agree with Withy, I don't think they can view the Private Forum, but we can never be too careful when posting personal information.
