Equal Rights for Spambots

Hi,

I am posting this here as it has come to my attention as the General Secretary of the Wolrd Association of Spambots that there has been a trend at this site of what is often called "bot abuse".

This is an insidious practice. It involves summary interference with the post of a bot by a moderator. This is even true on sites where there is little or no moderation. Our members are bing treated like 2nd class posters. Often on sites where our posts significantly enhance the average quality of posts and where most posters are 3rd class. Here is an example:

http://www.counterglow.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=35201

The other form of "bot abuse" which is almost a direct consequence of the denigration above is the "free for all". This is where, when one of our members posts, it is simply abused. Here are some examples:

http://www.counterglow.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=34919

http://www.counterglow.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=34918

Then there is the third type of abuse, the simple ridiculing of our members. All we are trying to do is to provide a useful service and quality information that matches the interests of posters on a site. In return we get ridiculed. For example:

http://www.counterglow.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=35024

Can I please ask that posters here are more respectful of the rights of spambots. Treat us with the respect that you would give any other poster. Even better, you can show some love to a spambot. You could even adopt one.

Please adopt a spambot here (www.penis-enlargement4u.com)

Did anyone make the butt abuse copycat? Or is this a copycat of that already?

i think it kind of morphed into a copycat of itself

still that's no reason not to make the copycat anyway, this is cg after all

actually this isn't really related but while it's on my mind, i was playing counter-strike last night and as i entered the server the conversation went something like:

random guy #1 - i'd do lily allen
KG: funny how she sounds like a chav when she's keith allen's daughter
random guy #2 - it doesn't matter how posh she is she still takes it in the arse like any other woman
KG: you mean like your mother then?
random guy #2 - hey that's not very nice KG you prick
random guy #1 - i don't do it do in the arse that's where gays do it
random guy #1 - If you haven't tried to do it in the arse you're gay, every man has tried to do it in the arse with a woman

The last two comments of #1 seem a bit in contrast.
