It doesn't happen very often-- once every month or two-- but every now and then I get an apparent robot coming in via the WebmasterWorld profile.

Q: Anything to do about it?

I don't perfectly understand how a robot can even see a profile link in the first place; isn't the "website" line constrained to human members with some number of posts under their belt?

I can't complain too loudly, because in the course of looking into the most recent one, I discovered I'd been doing something that's unfriendly to one subset of human visitors. Trala. Now fixed.

LMFAO! I just looked at the site in your profile and I'm rollin on the floor! -- Did you really tell someone to send you a sound clip of how to pronounce uqaq and you'd tell them? That's hilarious! I don't care if you've got bots or not LOL

Heh, no, it's all "what I would have liked to say" based on some of the odder queries :)

But when there's a forty-minute gap between request for a page and request for its attendant stylesheets-- and the images and js are never requested at all-- and the IP doesn't suggest satellite internet, you gotta suspect some degree of robotic involvement.
