I have seen the word Bot mentioned in the chat room more than once, some of you might well be wondering what a bot is.
Well bot is short for robot, robots can be quite good things in fact World of Chat has a small bot, that puts up the messages in the chat room.
Unfortunatly they can be abused also, anyone who uses Yahoo Chat or Aol Chat would know that, as their chat rooms have been plagued by users putting robots into their chat rooms, these robots pretend they are human and then try to get the user to visit their website.
The bots can pm and talk in a chat room, making them seem real, they usually say things like, anyone got a cam ? or anyone up for fun ? so beware !
These websites are often adult sites, some even have viruses or trojans, so bots can be really bad, they are also very annoying as the person who set up the bot, doesnt have to be there, you can set the bot up and just leave it to do its own thing.
Action should be taken against the users that set up these bots in chat rooms, if somone took legal action against them, they would soon stop !
