A few things I found out about bots and bot users.................
One recently abandoned forum has just under 28,000 registered members.
It's webmaster, leader, coder, "hero" appears to have vanished, all of his followers have not heard from his since around Christmas time.
Most of these bot s/w packages come with "life time" support, so you can imagine the pain when GOD disappeared LOL.
GODS name is/was Simon, some members still post their spasmodically calling out in vain for Simon.
Simon isn't his regular online name, it's his BOT online name. All members at that forum are very strongly advised not to use their own names, they are told to make up a brand new, never used before name that has no connection to their poker site/forum names.
Bot forums are no different to poker forums
in respect to how everyday happenings occur. They are a group of people with a common interest who discuss strategies etc on a daily basis.
Use google and see for yourself, type in "poker bots" and search through a few links until you find a bot selling website that also includes a forum within that link/website. You might be surprised.
Bots like AP/UB and FTP the most. Once you have done your google search and found what you are looking for you will see that for yourself.
Don't think for one moment I making this up or picking on certain poker sites
for no reason, google is your friend, use it.
These members and buyers of bot s/w are also strongly advised never to share their online poker site names with each other, never to post screenshots which include their own poker site names and likewise with HH's. They don't want you to get busted see.
When poker sites update their software, so do bot programmer/coders. they are usually back up to speed and good to go within 24 hours in most cases. Their customers can then update their bot s/w because of the "life time" support that came with their purchase.
That will do for now, and remember, google is your friend.
