Question What are spiders, and what are they doing here?

Seems strange, but when I look in the "Active members" section below the forum list, I see loads of "Yahoo! Slurp Spider" as guests. Is it something you know about?

You know those CRT monitors? When I had a CRT monitor there was a spider who decided to give birth to millions of tiny little spiders inside my monitor and they came out of the ventilation holes for months later.
I was going crazy and I hate spiders (and CRT's) ever since.

(web spiders are still cool though)

Spiders are invertebrate animals that produce silk, and have eight legs and no wings. More precisely, a spider is any member of the arachnida order Araneae, an order divided into two sub-orders: the Opisthothelae (which include the infraorders Mygalomorphae (trapdoor and tarantula spiders) and Araneomorphae (the modern spiders)), and the Mesothelae, which contains the Family Liphistiidae, primitive burrowing spiders from Asia. The study of spiders is known as arachnology.

I hate spiders too, but a world without spiders would be a world with far too many flies.

Because it would mess up the food chain, leading to the extinction of necessary animals. Or something.

No it wouldn't. If an unneccesary animal was vital to the survival of a neccesry animal, it would be neccesary. An unneccesary animal, by definition can be made extinct without causing any harm to the rest of us.

So we should kill 'em. Kill 'em all.

But I think that in the sense ChaosFish meant, unneccesary = annoying, i.e. pests.
