Quite likely a web crawler like Googlebot or one of the two dozen other common ones, building search indexes for the web. What’s the IP address it/they are coming from ? And can you get the browser identification string ? I can check my site logs, see if I’ve seen it too.

Quite apart from being monitored – probably unlikely for a very new site – thanks to the crawlers you can safely assume anything written on a public forum will be seen by anyone and everyone (and that includes dissing people and erm “intimate confessions” as much as organising the odd private party !)
