Since we do not display the first three posts from any new user until they are approved as good posts (not spam), this causes some phantom posts. What this means is that you see a bright colored CoS icon denoting that there are new posts to read, and then can't seem to find any. This means there are un-approved messages in that group. This mostly happens in the Ratskeller (where most of the spam bots seem to congregate).

We apologize for this, but the number of bots these days is really annoying, and though we try to clear these many times a day, we STILL have messages constantly popping in by spam bots causing these phantom unread icon issues. Just be aware of it, especially in Ratskeller, so you don't wonder where the new post is you are supposed to read.

Good posts are generally approved very quickly, so those messages aren't left in the phantom zone, those unread messages you can't see are just spam.

Not sure if this is true but i think there's an anti-bot software which was developed to avoid bots completely(i.e. delete bots/remove them completely).
I kinda forgot its name....

Think it mayb Blade.....

Well, they probably don't want to ban all bots. Having Google-Bot browse these forums is actually a good thing.
