BOTs generally aren't good but, maybe somebody chose that nickname as a joke?
BOTs are automated programs that search the web for info such as email addys, phone numbers, & personal web sites that are posted.
This info is harvested & given to another BOT programed to post spam, send spam, call you with spam offers etc.
I think it's short for robot program but I could be mistaken.

Actually from what I just read

This google bot is here to update google with our forums index... so when people google pets and animals.. our forum comes up

Here is what I got from google

We add and update new sites to our index each time we crawl the web, and we invite you to submit your URL here. We do not add all submitted URLs to our index, and we cannot make any predictions or guarantees about when or if they will appear.

Please enter your full URL, including the http:// prefix. For example: http://www.google.com/. You may also add comments or keywords that describe the content of your page. These are used only for our information and do not affect how your page is indexed or used by Google.

Please note: Only the top-level page from a host is necessary; you do not need to submit each individual page. Our crawler, Googlebot, will be able to find the rest. Google updates its index on a regular basis, so updated or outdated link submissions are not necessary. Dead links will 'fade out' of our index on our next crawl when we update our entire index.
