Search engine bots that crawl the site for Bing, Google, Majestic-12, and MSN, respectively. Giving them user accounts lets them see a stripped down version of the site to reduce overhead, and makes it easier to give them access to user-only forums or to exclude them from public forums that shouldn't be indexed.
