It might just be me--I guess, since nobody else has mentioned it--but there seems to be some kind of adbot registered to the site. Not only that, but it keeps changing its name, which seems decidedly not bot-like to me--more like a virus or someone that hacked the site.

Really, my main question is why hasn't anybody mentioned it and why is it still running around the site unchecked so far as I can tell?

    Because it's happened before, has been mentioned, and we're really not sure if Rob has ever done anything about it. Whenever it happens it eventually dies back off again, and I don't recall there ever being confirmation as to whether that's been due to action from Rob, or just dumb luck of the bots getting "tired".

    Many computer-savvy forumites have made suggestions of very quick fixes that have been summarily ignored so far as I can tell. And now with a new website in the works, I'm pretty sure Rob won't make any changes to this one now.

    EDIT: Removed a portion bashing the webmaster because I realized that the webmaster Harknell isn't the guy I was thinking of who got fired for poor conduct.

    There's gotta be a good joke in here somewhere.
