What's a "Bot" and how does it relate to who is online?
Is a Bot a bad thing?
The glory of God is the nature of God - that God is good.He is unfailingly good.He never changes,He will always be good.God has called us to do what we cannot do,only He can do it.He has called us to live in His faithfulness,He has called us to live in His consistency,that He will come and do all the things that need to be done.

Bot is computer slang for robot. It appears to be a person, but is really only program that collects or sends pre-programmed messages out. Basically everything that is in your spam e-mail box.

The bots you generally see listed under 'who's online' here at CPS are from search engines. Bing and Google being the most active here. They read and catalog our posts so they can be retrieved and shown to people who use those search engines. You may think we're only a group of 50 or so guys hidden in a corner of the internet, but really, the things we post can be seen by anyone. They're watching you.
