They're basically search engine tendrils scanning the web and cataloging webpages.....outside of that, I'm not really sure.

Spiders are not always good to have hanging around. Yahoo, Google, or any webengine is. But I have designed a few for companies and some can be evil(black bots/spiders). Im not sure how Shan has the forum setup but most clear text messages are recorded and sent to the bot/spiders owner.
