what a joke of a reply from Daneos...
edit: i didn't see that this was from 2016, hopefully Daneos has changed his stance on the situation considering how many botters there are now.
That was in 2016 when there was no GM's around.
This, but even back then, it still made sense. Aside from the fact that he has to spend most of the time looking at coding, he (or anyone else) is not going to magically know where the bots are and when they are active. GMs are banning bots everyday and you can easily help by reporting in a ticket with video proof.
So, go out there and record some bots whenever you run across them, if you want to help the cause. However, if you don't have video proof, nothing can be done so don't even bother in that case.
If you're not able to record, at best you can either ask someone else to, or tell us on Discord, just in case someone might be available at that very moment to go check it out.
