There are a few bots lurking in the Soylent IRC channels besides the services mentioned above.
Anyone wishing to develop bots should use #test or # for testing.
Please avoid flooding in private establishments and official channels (except #test and #). The #debug channel is used by bots for public error reporting (if dumping errors to #debug, bots should ideally be set to not respond to commands in that channel to prevent race/infinite loop conditions).
