Hi Marty,

Bots are Browser data collectors that trawl thru our forum so that if anyone Goggles LMLOCGB they find us in about 0.09 seconds along with at least 150 trillion other entries. If we didn't have the Bots, no one would be able to find us.

Unfortunately the Bots pick up on words like pawn, fbeepk and secks which brings a deluge of applications by sicko East Euro PR vert Spammers and downloadawife.cum from distant shores, as well as gender benders from the uk, since LML is close to -luv of my life- text speak.

I've got better things to do than sift thru 75-100 of these gits looking for genuine applications each evening.

Being a non techie type too, I think that it,s software(?) created by the big search engine companies that help them collect info that they can then add to their databases so for instance if someone types in ... "LML scooters" into the Google, Bing etc search engine, then this site will come up as part of the search result.
Well, that,s how I understand it to work.
Either that or it,s a subliminal message device. But that,s just crazy talk. Anyroad, gotta go as after reading some threads on here I am overcome with an overwhelming desire to change my homepage to Google and my email address over to MSN hotmail. Can,t think why??

Coming oh master :)
