i am against bots for the simple reason that when i click on the red envelope i am anticipating human interaction, not system messages. each time its a small disappointment but it adds up to frustration in the long run.

if we would have a separate envelope in blue, indicating bot messages, i wouldnt mind a whole bot army. like modmail basically.

I respectfully disagree.

I find it a much greater inconvenience to click on a story, and wind up at a GDPR consent page because it's washingtonpost.com or something.

We sure can man, thanks for tracking down the bot.

Not sure if this will need to be opt-in per sub though or if Said it gives it permission to post everywhere. Maybe we'll all have to vote on it.
