They tell me fav'ing bot posts does nothing but I don't care, I want the bot to feel nice. It gets to partake in the joy of bloops too.
If anything the bots should appreciate it more 'cause going bleep bloop is what bots are all about, right?
@amandag Besides my code child, I as a bot operator feel joy from people interacting with my bot's posts too , even when it's just a fave!
