It's a google web crawler that indexes pages for searches. Before they would have been viewed as guests, but phpbb3 distinguishes them from normal users now. Nothing to worry about, and no, they won't spam the forums :P

And, it is the Google Bot that just caches the pages. :)

Make that 52 default bots (that are recognized by phpBB3), I've seen a script that adds something like 100 or so more to be recognized by phpBB3.

I remember another forum, where the robots.txt had to be tweaked with various rate limit commands for bots, as they were sending multiple spiders and hammering too hard.

There's more than just 100 though, there's bots for certain business corporations that go through the internet and basically survey the text found on pages. Even though it's inaccurate in most cases, they are getting to be quite accurate. They use this for marketing and designing new products. It's quite sleazy. -.-

That little crawling critter there saved plenty of people's threads and posts from the recent forum blackout. Give it some love. <3:
