who cares about them if your site is operating correctly. As long as your hosting bill is not going up - who cares?

its has because my bandwith is around 100gig per month now :(

but luckily all paid for with banners for the year anyway with some $ spare for upgrading when the site becomes more popular.

are you getting notices from your hosting company that you are going over your allotted levels?

I don't think there is much you can do.

Looks like the bots love your site and come along to watch a few videos when their bored :) :)
