Do you mean the Google[Bot] for instance? It is indexing the site, so that people can find it via Google. Blocking it would be pretty dumb. :)

They are all search engines; they are there because the site is rather well indexed on most search engines. Blocking them would be bad. I can turn off the display of them being here, however banning them or turning off the optimisation would be a bad idea.
