    That's usually caused by a web crawler trying links blindly. Watch for awhile and you'll see Guest in "Moderating tasks" too. ;]

    Hey there are Guest also...

    Moderating Duties
    Reporting a Post
    Quoting Post in Thread
    Editing Post

    But they could also just be Guest that click on the links but they will not be able to do anything as a Guest.
