    Possibly the robot search engines following your cookies wherever you go.

    The guests are probably search engine spiders, they are continuously crawling every thread, so are not following you particularly :Smile: Fun is heavily indexed by the search engines, Google alone indexes as of right now 1,042,178 separate Fun urls. Then there is every other search engine. MSN, Yahoo, Bing et al. Those robots can consume massive bandwidth and even crash servers. Smaller forums have to ban them as they can slow a site right down, but without their indexing you stay small. Most anything that is posted on the forum is collated, cached and stored forever in just a few seconds :Eeek: So you are right. Big Bruv is out there and his memory appears to be infinite.
