maybe a dumb question but why are there typically many more 'guests' and robots (!) than actual M3OC members online at any given time? Thanks, Mike

The robots are to keep search engine results "fresh". For a website that changes fairly frequently (like a forum), they'll crawl a website fairly often.

As for guests, many people just want to read the forum, and don't care to participate. So they don't create a login, and just browse around.
