What are Bots and should I block them?

@adamd there are different types, but the most common are federation bots. By following you they pull your toots onto the federated timeline for that instance. In effect they're signal boosters. If you want to keep things local, block away. If you don't care it's best to let them be. You don't need to follow back.

I made one called Rita Replusa @rita (based on the mean witch in the power rangers). She toot random quotes from the quote bank I made.

She doesn't follow anyone. It was mainly to code something in python and learn stuff.
