Internet bot!

Published:

What is a bot?

A bot -- short for  robot  and also called an  internet bot  -- is a computer program that operates as an  agent  for a user or other program or to simulate a human activity. Bots are normally used to automate certain tasks, meaning they can run without specific instructions from humans.

An organization or individual can use a bot to replace a repetitive task that a human would otherwise have to perform. Bots are also much faster at these tasks than humans. Although bots can carry out useful functions, they can also be malicious and come in the form of  malware.

These are similar to crawlers but are used for data harvesting and extracting relevant content from webpages.    Web Scraping Crawlers!

Makes me wonder if Numbnutz is a bot cuz he just keeps on repeating the same talking points from the Fake News Channels over and over and over and doesn't ever answer any questions.

I"m not calling any names, but, sometimes, I feel like some lurkers are bots! Lurking for winning numbers, no post, no comments, just lurking.
