Who are the BOTS? Are they Russian?

Post by Original Quill on Thu Apr 12, 2018 12:51 pm

The schedule below tells us: "42 users online :: 3 Registered, 0 Hidden and 39 Guests :: 2 Bots." So I'm wondering, who among us are the bots?

As an aside, there is so much talk these days of the IRA bots from Russia...could we be infected? Who would they be now that SB is gone?

15 are Russian. 10 from Facebook. The remainder are spyware from a Turkish troll site.

Idea

When there's only "2 Bots", I'm guessing Google and Bing  ???

They have been two of the leading data-collectors for advertising for yonks...
