I know nothing about these 'Bots' but it will be fascinating to see how many people get banned off these sites. There will be ordinary players getting banned for doing nothing wrong. I await further updates

lmfao i wonder what a great pr it would be to ban a regular poker player just because he looks like a bit, oh fcuk as if they have millions of poker players already... as if poker industry is facing a huge player base overload... oh and yeah why ban bots if they are really ideal customers... pay lots of rake, don't complain, don't require any extra paid human hours in support... as long as the overall client numbers aren't shrinking i don't see a problem here, even if bots form like 90% of the overall players base

typical american style. reminds me a bit on g.w. bush and the axis of evil. they didnt know where the threat came from, so they just attacked several countrys and killed randomly with collateral damage, just to give a vent ones anger.
once a pokersoftware is installed its working like a trojan virus yet they can not detect bots...or are not willing. disapointing.
someone who has a real good bot will come back. not that hard to fake ID´s now a days. i think you get it for $10 from india via internet.

Typical american style? They knew exactly where the threat came from - there are a truckload of intelligence documents currently leaked from the early 00's where they name Saudi-Arabia as the brain behind the attacks plain and simple - but they fabricated a fitting narrative to help them attack all the other countries they reall aimed for... It was all smoke and mirrors, nothing random happened there trust me.

Some mutli table players are looking like a bot with white faces and a ring around the eyes But i think bots are killing online poker and so it was verry nice to read, that some Networks do something against these bots

Those statements are all so over the top, both from the self declared botter, and the response from the CEO of the company, that it starts to look like a guerrilla marketing campain to me. We will see what will follow in this case.
