    So, what are the robots noted in the "members only" section, on the right-hand side of the home page? I've only recently noticed this section (yep, I'm that observant), and it's piqued my curiosity.

    Admin needs to update the robots.txt file on the server. Not only what Scoolman said; robots are also search engine robots that browse the site and index the contents so they show up in a search query.
