when I signed up for this forum I had to have an email.
My question is how does the robots or bots what ever they are called get access to the forum
without filling out the same thing I had to fill out?

Have you seen a bot post to CFnet? If one of them did, that is a highly advanced bot! It better adhere to the ToS. :wink

the answer to your question is No. However you did not try to answer my question. One would think by the question;
I have a very limited knowledge of the bots I was trying to gain a little more knowledge thats all.

Sorry, Roro. I was being facetious, and I should have taken into consideration that we don't connect often enough here on CFnet to expect that to play. I meant no offense. Just having fun.

Bots are basically "creepers" that websites can permit or not permit. They facilitate search engines like Google to gather key word information that results in more effective search results. Nothing more. They don't sign up, agree to anything, and of course they don't post anything. Anyone can view unrestricted forums on CFnet. They just cannot post to CFnet or exchange private messages unless they go through what you went through and agree to our terms.

Sorry. I'll lay off the sarcasm. :salute

If this were posted in the Q & S for CFnet, I might not have concluded that you were just having fun.

My expertise has been Phone systems of all kind. I use a computer fairly well. I do not have much knowledge
of the internal workings and I use the net fairly well and again not much knowledge of bots and such. Thank you for the info it does give me some basic knowledge and that is all I was looking for. no harm done, thanks for the answer
