Attaching a bot on Sololearn

Automation is now the current play of the day. i know sololearn is not a exemption but how will the sololearn community be affected if everyone attached a bot on sololearn. is it a good idea?? give your reactions and thoughts about this.

@schafer tracking a bot reaction is almost instantaneous because of the constant manner in which they operate. they offer a great relief to some of our stressful tasks but may be detrimental if allowed to roam. humans on the other hand are exclusively dynamic. in effect I'm 100% sure your response is not automated. 😃

Business wants to understand its user base. Organic (real, human) data -- like how people use a service -- is one way companies that don't charge user fees survive. Though additional data points like 'how many people are botting and what they bot" may be useful (even leading to new features), bots dilute your true, organic reactions in the community and may increase load on people trying to separate bot junk from people just starting and making honest errors. On the other hand, I've wanted to automate some tasks..., just not at the expense of this service.

I also do other things that give away my human status. :) Hopefully nobody is discouraged (as if I know) though. Entrepreneurs work around challenges like this every day. All I got out was a story some companies use.

Well, there is always the question, why would solo learn want that? The bots are already everywhere. irritating too. but as mentioned they are recognized by the patterns they create
