I Saw that too. And I agree, just kick them out and it should fix things.

Line up those defenses again Joe. I don't like the sight of AdSense [bot] appearing in the active user list.

The "Bots" are not really bots, but rather Spiders.
They go through pages on the intertubes and collect data about what the site offers in the way of content so that search engines can give you better answers.
They are benign and actually quite helpful.
