I didnt know if theres a topic for this, so i made one!  Smiley

Im curious about our guests. Every time I check whos online, I see guests viewing their messages, sending messages and viewing whos online - among many things that members can do.  So how is it possible for guests  to do stuff members can do?  Huh

They're just search engine spiders browsing easily generated links like:
?action=pm
?action=who
etc.

Even though they may not have access to anything AT that URL, they can still access the URL itself. But can't do anything from there.
