The registered users online section of the homepage shows Baidu [Spider]. Sorry I can't do a picture - not sure how to on my computer.

Anything to be concerned about BigDave?

Search engines (Google, Yahoo, etc) browse the site so that they can include it in the search results. That piece of software that browses the site automatically is called a "spider".

Baidu is a Chinese search engine that is searching the site so that if someone in China Googles us Baidus us, we will show up in their results.
