It would be more interesting to see view counts of actual humans if only MyBB would exclude known crawler user agents from the counts.

Right now, on the main forum index page, I see this:

Quote:Who's Online [Complete List]
215 users active in the past 15 minutes (7 members, 1 of whom is invisible, and 204 guests).
Bing, Google, Alexa Internet, Baidu, cjmcc, franco51,, Leviset, Sylvain Cote, Thomas Okken

MyBB clearly recognizes the search engine crawlers. Shouldn't that mean that it is also smart enough to exclude them from the view count? (Not a rhetorical question, I really don't know.)
