Slurp Spider?

There are anywhere from ten to fifteen Yahoo! Slurp Spiders scrounging around our board at any one time. What are these little bots, and what do they do? Presuming anybody knows.

I know Wikiedia isn't that much of a trustworthy resource, but i just wanted some kind of answer quickly lol
From Wikipedia (on Yahoo! Slurp):
"Yahoo! Slurp (Slurp) is a web crawler from Yahoo! group. It crawls the web and puts content into the Yahoo! Search engine."

The rest of the article is a little too technical, and contains unnecessary information just for this answer. lol...So those Slurp Spiders on the Who's Online list must be Spiders sent from Yahoo to crawl around and gather info for their multiple search engines.
Hope that helps with the answer--if anyone knows anything else, i'm getting kind of interested in it hahaha...they're cool names

You quiznit! I'm mad at you, Dream, for finding that on Wikipedia. I looked, but didn't get anything. Now I feel stupid. :P Oh well.
