Ban the spambot

IMO jimmygarison the bot has overstayed his welcome. Do you think he and future bots like him should be banned from the forum?

I'm torn. He does bring up posts that I like re-reading that I wouldn't otherwise see. Intellectually, I like to see if there is any improvement in his AI skills. But he also can be a pain. I voted to let him stay but it's close to the other way... But ban other spam bots - yes.

I voted no. Jimmy is harmless to a point. He does drag up old posts that I probably missed the first time. If he would stick with current posts, he would be hard to spot as a bot.

I like the resurfacing of cool old threads too; maybe there is a better way we can go about doing that than having some bot decide for us.

Hi, I'm Andy. This forum great share fabrication use skills and share helps everyone.



Toy with "it"
Put some limits or restrictions on him. Make "it" evolve some how, some way. "It", we, are being monitored.
Hack the dang thing!

I have guessed that it's a computer science school project. No real knowledge tho.

So it's just an AI gathering program? Why make it so phony? Why not start it out half ass legit then flip the switch?

I obviously don't understand bots or why they would create them but it would seem to me on any other forum this style of bot would get axed day one.

I guess that could be a clue as to why I don't get them...

Was looking forward to seeing his comments on this thread.

Better that he's cut off before he gets violent though.

Now the post count will go way down.
