Amazon Registry Services is excited to present .BOT a new TLD [nic.bot]

One TLD to rule them all, One TLD to find them, One TLD to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
If only.

Feels strange to be cheering for Lord Sauron cum Bezos...
I think I need to have a lay down...

Note: of course the bots we most don't want won't so really nothing much will change.

And to add to the confusion, there are at least 3 different actors using the DotBot user agent.

A bit ironic that Amazon would introduce this TLD since their AWS hosts a majority of bot runners.

The very opposite of ironic then: it sounds perfectly appropriate :)
