According to a post on searchengeforums.com Lycos hasn't added
ANYTHING to their index since 11/11/98!!! They're saving submissions
and will add them when their software problems are fixed which should
be very soon. From my experience with Lycos this is quite believable.

Also I saw something on those forums to indicate Lycos doesn't
index pages with less than 100 words. Interesting info especially
if you have a gateway page. One question: does that number include
meta keywords?

Apparently it is possible to phone Lycos, and that is where this info
originates.

Anyone else hear this stuff?
