If possible, could you compile a list of bots affected
at a lower
threshold - maybe 1,000. That will give us a better idea of the scale
of bots operators that will be affected when this lands - currently in
one months time.
I already have the list of *accounts* affected: there are 510 with between
1000 and 10000 hits. Of those, 454 do not contain "bot" (case
insensitively), so they might be human users with user scripts, or AWB if
that's not fixed (someone please check!), or the like. For comparison, in
the over-10000 group there were 30 such that I filtered out.
I'll want to check with Legal to make sure the additional release of
not entirely sure it would be ok).
Will the deploy date be moved back if the impact
doesnt diminish by
bots being fixed?
That's not impossible, but I wouldn't count on it.
