They just gather information for search engines no big deal really. They used to search the meta tags, etc to use for search engine information but alot of them are changing since people were putting everything in the world in those tags to get hits from a se.

yes, it's the Yahoo! crawler.

it's indexing pages for the Yahoo search engine.

the text file used to stop or help it is robots.txt but on a dynamic forum that file is not much good.

best to just let it carry on and index pages.
