Bots on DEV?

On social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram, there are Bot accounts.

Is there a possibility this could be a thing on DEV too?

We have had some bots, but we are a bit better at dealing with it than some other platforms because we force you to sign up with another account so we can tell how old it is etc.

We also have a pretty solid proactive way of banning the bots, so the last wave seems to have lost interest, but it will be an ongoing fight.
