Withy Brook's Avatar I would like to have a whatsit that shows my mind going round in faster and faster circles and then falling over.
Do you feel like that too Cait?

Actually, this is really simple.

A bot is just a little spy that drops in to find out everything about us. And it could find out EVERYTHING about us every last one of us our families, our illnesses, etc., etc. Shocked Blink The exact information it collects depends on what it's designed to search out.

What any bot will learn is that Cowart's Skool is basically an annex of Bedlam, filled with people who have multiple eccentricities, the vast majority of which are quite harmless. Except for a Headmistress who wields a chain saw; that's dangerous. Confused

There are ways of stopping these critters, if we don't want them dropping in and snooping about the skool. Almighty Admin could stop 'em dead in their tracks, if we asked.

Do we want to ask?
