Thank you for your response, Pete, appreciated.
Respectfully, am honestly trying to get my widdle bwain wrapped around this stuff. You list 2 more Bots than I have at the beginning of my post. So then, there are no less than 6 Bots here constantly and/or regularly? Have got reasons in asking these questions, as this website forum is the sole one of the many sites personally visited on a daily basis where I regular get intermittent, irregular slowdowns. Am striving to understand why them apples do like that, it's puzzling.
Am knowing that there's a way to throttle back many Bots in regards to how much bandwidth they consume as they crawl through everything on a website. In the event that they are consuming more than it's presently realized then this may be something that you may wish to pursue in the future. After all, if it takes a Bot only a few more minutes to effectively crawl a website in total (seconds, more like it) then how much difference can this make in the largest scope of things in their reporting back to their masters for information dissemination? (Gee, that almost sounds intelligent, heh!)
