everyone has bots
aol, irc, reddit, google, microsoft, various forums, cia, the jetsons
but not 4chan
even Grindr is full of bots.
that's why I use Blued.
Because they can't get past the captcha
I'm not sure but I'm pretty thankful. Imagine if we had to dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing. He knows EXACTLY what he's doing. Barack Obama is undertaking a systematic effort to change this country, to make America more like the rest of the world.
I'd rather fucking not.
Seriously though, anyone who thinks 4chan didn't have bots is very new.

Shit, why do you think moot added captcha?
>why do you think moot added captcha?
To jew money out of the userbase by having them buy passes.
now that is the most generous thing I've seen someone say in a long time
captchas were around for quite a while before passes, and people were clamoring for it (it was /q/'s idea, not moot's)
there used to be tons of bots (back in like 2007 or so), generally recaptcha does a good job with them. also 4chan has very very aggressive internal spam filters.
the most bots i ever see are in (or attempting to be in) wordpress comments. other than that not much
>at least I hope that last one wasn't all just people posting...
It's not uncommon for people to rebel against word filters by spamming the filtered words unironically, see Streisand effect, senpai desu.
Those are the "Who would win 100 Marines or 1 Stick" -posts on /b and most probably the /backupreminder/ on /g only to name two.
Probably they are 4chin approved and don't have to to solve capture? Are 4chin devs here?

How about no?
Wait a second, what the fuck is going on in this thread? An exact replica of it is on some forum site.
some autism decided to mirror everything on a "forum" and place ads everywhere. it pops up when looking for stuff in archives so it's a quick way of making money. strips out images and keeps text for low hosting fees.
because moot was (and still is) a big gigantic faggot
