Dropped off %100 from hotbot
From Inachu at Help Desk Club on 23 Feb '00
replying to Spamming results posted by Inachu

Things went from great to worse in less than 2 days.

No I do not even show up in the index.

This must be a problem with hotbot or sabotage.

Either way hotbot will learn of my results and see if they really care.

If not then the accuracy of their search engine will fall into question.

Has anyone else run into this problem just with hotbot?

Please let me know....
