you do know that most bots on here is just so that people can follow conversations without having to subscribe to every one else :)

@theru Yea, still its a bit boring. Sometimes my timeline is just filled with bots 'boosting' stuff. :/

aaa might be different on mastodon :) most of the bots that follow me mostly is so people don't need to subscribe to me but can see my convo with other
@NYbill That's something else. Followbots tend to be pretty silent, as their purpose is just to subscribe to users to pull their dents & toots into the instance's TWKN timeline. @theru

@NYbill neat idea. What is bugging you? I imagine they annoy folks in different ways, so discussing it might provide solutions. ^_^

@NYbill @theru @maiki There seems to be a convention on some instances that putting #nobots in your profile should be honored ( #bots and #botmeisters should not subscribe the #bot to your account ).
