The famous ChanBot of WatchBOL #CNETFans
Once upon a time, ChanBot was merely an IRC program.
Then Tom, Molly and Jason - and a few other hosts - began to address him as if he was one of the human moderators.
Now he has a Twitter account and Dr Rob has noted that he and buzzbot are following each other there. "Perhaps there is a budding internet bot-romance afoot?" he wondered.
Only Time will tell
On The WebEdit
ChanBot spends most of his time chilling in #CNETFans. He is currently undergoing anger management training to control his occasional random kicking habit, but claims: "People have blown this way out of proportion". He enjoys surfing and fishing (for compliments).
Involvement with Buzz Out LoudEdit
When pb30 registered #CNETFans on GeekShed as the IRC home for the BOL chat, he added one of the GeekShed BotServ Bots] to do simple automated tasks. Bots can be programmed to kick for various reasons such as flooding, spamming, and bad language. A BotServ Bot is an IRC program. The one pb30 chose was called ChanBot.
And the rest is history.
