When i say "they" i am referring to the creators of arachnoboards

also, allow me to correct my myself, when i said different from spiders, i should have said physically different from other mygalomorphs

When you say 'trapdoor spider' which trapdoor are you referring to? I've heard all of the following families called trapdoors and of course they all have different morphologies. So... are we talking Idiopidae, Actinopodidae, Ctenizidae, Migidae or Cyrtaucheniidae?
