I'll tell you how I know the 'time monks' are just liars.
On an old episode of C2C where they gave an interview, they mentioned that on the bots travels, it came across hostile bots at times, and bots from
The cold truth is this is not how the internet works. A bot is just like any program that accesses the net, it connects to port 80, and requests the
page you want, same as your browser. Now when this happens, there is no way to know who else is on the site, unless the site publicises those
details. One example would be on this site (ATS), there is a list of currently logged in users. However, that data would be insufficient to
determine for example that a chinese government bot is on the site (unless it's username was chinese_gov_bot, lol), the only way to determine
something in that detail is to know the IP address and do a lookup on it. Only the site owners have that kind of detail, and 99.9% don't put it out
there. Add on top of this the fact that those kind of projects would never be run from an actual government network, they would use a front business,
or even just a front home for small jobs, so it would not be traceable.
I call shenanigans on their whole scheme, I don't believe they even run the bot at all, I doubt they ever wrote a single line of code for it,
