Sorry. Just a clarification. I hope you mean bot-generated 
articles are to be excluded in the tally only as long as they 
remain non-humanly edited. I see no point in indefinitely 
excluding some articles from a global tally, as all articles 
regardless of creation are bound to change content and style 
over time.

Best of wishes,
