So in the end, we will have Scambots talking to Anti-Scambots. Result: huge waste of energy and increased CO2 emissions. Make #tech #green already!

While I totally love the idea of keeping the scammers busy using a chatbot, in the grand scheme of things this is just wasted energy.

We really need to start thinking about the energy use for these stupid things.
