I am not very knowledgeable about how they operate at all. I do understand that they are programs that do "stuff" online. Most of this stuff that i am familiar with is pron bots bothering me while i "surf". Does/can the NSA track bots? if yes, then how do they determine that they are not human? This strikes me as one of those flaws in a system that the government never thought about. A flaw in a multimillion/billion dollar tax payer funded system. Can anyone provide an answer to this question? Because if they can tell if something is a bot, then they probably don't monitor bots, and this MIGHT be a secure/overlooked means of communication. If they DO monitor bots, then this would also be a dangerous flaw, because whats stopping AL-Queda/Foreign military from making a bunch of distracting bots to keep the NSA busy?
