Bots are taking over the world! At the end of 2015 it was found, on the Interner World Stats site, that 48.2% of the internet usage was made by Asia. With North America coming in at 9.3%. In a annual Bot Traffic Report made by Imperva Incapsula in 2015 it was found that nearly half, or 48.5% of traffic on the internet is made by bots. This is a percent of both the bad bots and good ones with 29% being bad. This is why we are now having to do all the CAPCHA and other hoop jumping to get on many of the sites we now frequent. The bad bots being the ones used for criminal activity on the net. This, to me, is scary. Your thoughts on this issue. Do you know what movie the phrase in the title is from?

I've been on some social sites where the activity is so low that it appears that many of the users are actually robots - they make random comments that are totally out of context to the posts. That alone is not enough to make me think they are bots but then they all seem to randomly use the same phrases over and over. I think it was done to make the site look much more active than it really was. A very surreal experience.

I have been on some that were like that in the past. I wonder if there were many bots online back in the late 90's and early 2000's. I can see where this use of bots would be done. I bet your experience was rather surreal, even eery. Do you know much about the Dark Web?

@celticeagle It was VERY surrea and eery at first until l learned I could easily recognize them after a while. No, I can't say I know much about the Dark Web.

@madcrochetlab ....I think that is where a lot of the bots and hackers are hiding out.

I have no idea about what movie my friend. I always have a hard time wrapping my head around bots on the net. The whole way the net is and the world is going is too scary to think about.

The Day The Earth Stood Still is where the title phrase comes from. I am speaking of the original movie with Michael Rennie. Do you know much about the Dark Net? That is was creeps me out.

The Bots are getting to be a real problem. They're too good at getting around security. Is the information we have on our computers really safe? Probably not.

We have to keep them at bay. Keeping our passwords new and different is important.

'The Day The Earth Stood Still' is the movie. I deal with bots at work. Yes, they can be a pain in the behind. Also, the last word in the phrase should be 'nikto'. I doubt that Gort will respond to Helen had she said a word differently.
