BotB is the multifunctional IRC Bot for the IRC
channel #botb on irc.esper.net and displays events that happen on the BotB website, such as logins, new entry uploads, BotBr level ups
, and a plethora various of misc stuff.
BotB Is following the original rules of Robots as described by Isaac Asimov:
- A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
