It's the Google bots ... definately, atleast it's the only VIABLE explanation. There couldn't be so many real people at that exact moment.

Thats what I was thinking.. But damn.. Why so many bots. It doesnt make sense.. And yes there can be. Why isnt it logical? I think its logical, but unexplainable.. And kinda mysterious..

Well welcome to all new visitors and members anyway
although its always nice to be small and good isnt it?
seems to lose a bit of an edge when your one of many, rather
than one of a few.

I have been getting some reported posts through computerforums.org lately, in addition to the normal path, & I'm sure Google was mentioned in them.
Have any other mods had the same experience?, the ".org" ones arrive on my OE, 8 - 10 hours after the first, normal routed ones, but the "sent" time/date is shown exactly the same as the original, hours earlier.
David, this probably explains the "weird", as I put it, messages I told you about, can they be stopped in any way?

PS; I found CF by Google too.

The uncomplicated title Computer Forums places it now at the very top of the Google page, I just typed the generic term "computer forums" on Google last year, expecting a list of sites, which there was, but because CF was the first, I went for that, & am very glad I did, so the the great swell of new members, must, I should think, be due to this.

It might've been a bit of an attempt to DoS the server..
It happened to my forums last year where the most I ever had online was 200, then I had 3000 on one day. Multiple sites were hit that week, and reports were posted on vBulletin.com
