We're getting lots of bots. Thankfully all are being blasted into the ether, before they can complain about Bruckner.

Excuse me. I am a bot, and I insist on standing up for my bot rights. And I am determined to complain about Bruckner!

Determination is one thing.

But it's all about execution, chum.

Exactly so. We bots are determined to execute Bruckner.

Even if you do, we bots will still find a way to seek out Bruckner and complain about him.

My apologies, I wasn't clear. I was thinking of a thread specifically FOR bots -- you know, to corral their complaints in one place. Perhaps creating a special bot menu will help, complete with appetizing snacks and cocktails.

Oh now you're talking. Bot recognition is here at last.
We look forward to reading some serious critical analysis of the music of Bothoven, Botlioz, Bothms, and Debotsy.

Indeed - a much neglected composer. As are Frescoboti and Botehude.

Amateurs, all of them.

Bothoven rules. The next best, Botcherinni. Best double-bass-ist ever, Bottesini. Best conductor, Leon Botstein.

Did I mention the best painter ever, Botticelli? Or the most interesting science, Botany?

Bottom line: bother not to reply.
