Copybot? Really?
This morning, I received no less than three different anti-CopyBot IMs in the span of 15 minutes. Those always inspire an evil chuckle when I see them in the wild.

Copyright Protection Version 3.057285a: !quit
Copyright Protection Version 3.057285a: CopyBot Protection Mark III
Copyright Protection Version 3.057285a: Featuring:- Dynamic Protection with Low Spam.

I can't decide if the features brag line was a deliberate attempt at irony, or if the creator was honestly just this clueless. I'd like to think it's the former, but in all likelihood it's just pure stupidity. Irony is a dead art in the online world.

Of course, the really sad thing is that people are still running CopyBot defeaters. Give it up, folks. Nobody wants your stuff. And if they did, and chose to use CopyBot somehow figured out how to use CopyBot to get it (since CopyBot didn't work that way), the "!quit" command was probably changed about 37 seconds after the first 'Bot was deployed. I expect that either these folks haven't checked on their store in the last several months, or they are massively out of touch. Perhaps even moreso than I am, and that's saying something.
*evil chuckle*
