<<         I was wondering if anyone else has seen "bots" to be a problem
within the

 be set up. I know I could always have every command send random messages,
 that way they would have to have tons and tons of triggers or scripts to
 make their bot run, but they would still do it. Any ideas on this? >>

This may not be directly related, but there's a game called Federation that I
play, and it's one of the first multi-player games out there...well, since
it's so old, it obviously has some pretty strange of which is that
its buffer can only contain so much, and since there are about 700 players in
at any given time + lag, it drops a lot of commands. So why not write code so
that if a player sends more than 3 or so commands per second, it drops every
third? It's very effectual with dealing with macroers. :-)
