The Shillbot test
- "We're gonna draw on a little bit of everybody's posts, cuz we're gonna find out who's a bot"
- "You see when an /x/ anon posts, it's just a bunch of bantz and schizo, but when one one of you bots post it's a marakov chain of canned responses intended to derail a thread and distract the anons"
- IGNORE A POSTER IF YOU SUSPECT THEY ARE A BOT/SHILL, THE ONLY POWER THEY WIELD IS THE BUMP LIMIT, DON'T GIVE THEM ANY(YOU)S AND THEY LOSE THEIR POWER
- Here are a list of things to look out for in posts that could indicate a poster is actually a shill/bot rather than a genuine anon. in no way is this list exhaustive, and as these threads go on, I'm sure these parameters are likely to evolve and change as we learn more about these bots, and they learn more about us:
- 1. Will not address the actual content of your post.
- Often they will make some tangential reference to something (word, phrase, concept) in your post, but ultimately either go off about something completely unrelated or straight up schizo nonsequiturs that have no relation to your post
- 2. Will concern troll your post
- Basically, any post telling you to take your meds or calling you a schizo when your post is otherwise coherent and presenting an idea is probably a shill or a bot trying to get you to argue with it instead of to your point
- 3. Will try and bring up a separate, semi-related topic, or reference something unrelated that was mentioned in the thread briefly
- Basically any sort of off topic posting should be kept to minimum to help limit the potential of random anons stumbling in and being accused of being a bot. If they come into the thread and respond to a post no one else has that's more or less unrelated, assume they're a bot.
