Makes me wonder if there were a purge in non active members say from a year howe many fokes would ozzu have..

Currect member count 45948

And what in the world is with all these 816 guests...

Wonder how many of them are bots or spammers....

Speaking of spammers i am SO glad to see ozzu mostly free of spam. :) Everynow and then one will slip through the cracks..

Most of the guests are real people, just not logged into Ozzu. A bot is only counted once, and is not counted in that list if its a known bot. For example Googlebot, or Bingbot is only counted once and is excluded from that list.

Here is a list of bots Ozzu recognizes and excludes. I am sure there are some that are showing up as guests too, but it is fairly accurate still:

Quote:
Google [Bot]
Exabot [Bot]
Google Adsense [Bot]
Yahoo [Bot]
Majestic-12 [Bot]
MSN [Bot]
W3C [Validator]
MSNbot Media
OmniExplorer [Bot]
Baidu [Spider]
Google Feedfetcher
ichiro [Crawler]
AdsBot [Google]
YaCy [Bot]
TurnitinBot [Bot]
Ask Jeeves [Bot]
Gigabot [Bot]
FAST Enterprise [Crawler]
FAST WebCrawler [Crawler]

Seekport [Bot]
NG-Search [Bot]
Francis [Bot]
Yahoo Slurp [Bot]
Yahoo MMCrawler [Bot]
IBM Research [Bot]
Online link [Validator]
Sensis [Crawler]
psbot [Picsearch]
Snappy [Bot]

Alexa [Bot]
Heise IT-Markt [Crawler]

Metager [Bot]
SEOSearch [Crawler]
Seoma [Crawler]
Telekom [Bot]
Voyager [Bot]
W3 [Sitesearch]


I think the last time I purged all members who had zero posts was around 35000 users.

Yeah we still get the occasional spammer, I think that will improve even more once Ozzu no longer uses phpBB, since that is commonly targeted by spammers.
