New Bot

Mon Feb 22, 2021 12:18 pm

I see a new BOT has been brought online. This swatiBOT still produces the crappy listicle article that ReneeBOT did. I guess reneBOT is tired or ran out of listicle ideas.

ReneeBOT gets outsourced to Indian SwatiBOT?

We need three more bots or botesses, then we can compile a list of top 5 list-compiling bots. Later on, when the number rises to 5*5 (or 5^5, not sure), it should be possible to compile a list of top 5 lists of top 5 list-compiling bots.

There was one recently posted here about the Sydney area. Not sure by the language used here that may be of interest. :lol:

There are some similarities in writing style between the two of them... it's possible they just copied the first bot and renamed?

Although, if I recall correctly, Renee did respond to posts early on after the takeover... I honestly don't know which is sadder... the idea that Renee is a bot and the new site owners made replies as "her" to try and build the illusion; or that Renee (and possibly the new one) are actually real people and are just *that* terrible at writing.

Would you even call that writing? It's a bunch of lists with comments.

Glorified ads from companies spewing their features in a listicle format.

"Reviews" that are clearly paid for (and written by) the companies in question.

I wouldn't call either writing.

I wouldn't call it good writing. But technically it is writing.

Its been almost a month since any bot has posted a listicle. Did they run out of listicle ideas?
