Just happened to notice on one of the forums (News and Aircraft Visitors) at the bottom of the page where it says "Users browsing this forum" the first user it had was "Google Adsense [Bot]"...

I don't know much about Bot's but I always thought they were bad (i.e. spyware/adware associated) or took user's info to send them unsolicited popups.

Is this normal in this case?

No, this is a bot that monitors content for search reasons. It's very normal to see a bot around her for google, msn, yahoo, etc.

Nothin to worry about.
