IRC 'Bots and scripts are the user's way of automating certain tasks on an IRC channel. I admit to not ever having used, or wished to use, bots at all. A lot of servers even expressly forbid their use as they can hog bandwidth and cause all sorts of mayhem - however innocently.
Quite a few people have mailed me concerning the availability of these entities for Macintosh clients, and therefore, to ease my mailbox, here is a list of sites you may wish to
avoid visit to find out more about the use of 'bots and which clients will support them.
Please don't mail me with queries about 'bots - if you do i'll be forced to reply with some derisory comments about your intellectual achievements; you could however tell me if you know of a site that's not listed above...
