What in the heck is a Slurp Spider, and what is its purpose? I see it crawling around the site every evening late. Makes me feel like getting some insecticide or something.

Forgive me - computer illiterate.

A Spider is a search engine's tool for indexing web pages. The spider "crawls" to each page on the forums and adds it to the search engine. Then, when someone does a search with certain keywords found in the page that was indexed by the spider, it comes back to that person's search results.

There's also a Google Spider... watch out for him. He has really large fangs and poisonous venom.
