It's a mystery, to be sure Gis. This would qualify as a post on things you don't understand  ;D

we don't have the DVDs but we do have the Great Pumpkin and Charlie Brown Christmas on VHS and we break them out and watch them a couple times each during the holidays. 

as for the guest invasion. It's an unusually large amount of activity and is ok by me until they start complaining or criticizing. Then I think they need to register and be a part of the community.

guests can be very annoying sometimes. I find that a lot of them are opinionated and rude.  I don't understand why someone would want to remain a guest, lurking about, when they can join the site for free. ::)

And I have noticed that a lot of them have left spam/incoherent comments (worse than anything that "robocop" would ever do). ::)

I suppose they could remain a guest for as long as they want. That is, until they decide to register.

Programs, not people.. they're just programs designed to watch this forum.. usually, advertisers use them to try to find out how to appeal to people.

I wasn't sure what a "bot" was either, so here's the definition I got on Wikipedia:

"A software program that imitates the behavior of a human, as by querying search engines or participating in chatroom or IRC discussions."

Like a certain entity who uses an ellipsis mark as his pseudonym. I've seen him on the 2000's, 1990's and Parodies forums for the last three years. ::) If he registers, then he can post in PPP.

"Guest" is generic. I suppose lots of people use that pseudonym if they don't want us to know who they are.

I just clicked on it...I guess it's been on the site for quite awhile now. Of all the parodies I've looked at, I guess I hadn't read that one yet. I'll be sure to vote/comment on it at some point. :)
