With Eve Vegas beginning today I decided to do a little surfing around the Eve botting forums. I didn't really find enough to warrant a full "War on Bots" post, but I did find some amusing posts from September. Before getting to the botting posts, I thought I'd bring to light an apparent scam occurring on the Public Demand forums.

25 September: Bntyhunter (Public Domains)
I bought this account
2 weeks later he changed the account PW, and gave me false info. I lost
275 American dollars, so I am getting character banned unless he
contacts me so if you were going to buy character I wouldnt as it seems
to be a scam.
Ever wonder why the Eve Online forums have a Character Baazar section? The above is why. Now for botting related matters. Forgive me for including a post from August, but I liked it.
31 August: frblyes (H-Bot) - so are the bans still being given out like free candy from a pedafile to little school girls?
15 September: godles1 (Eve Pilot) - just got back playing eve started miner up did about 6 hours of ice
minning. down time came went to eat came back to play and said was ban
for macro.i was on my other guy doing mission so how is i use your
program now and get baned now?
18 September: Captain Obvious (Eve Pilot) - I agree with "the Eldest". Usually it takes another botter that reports
a botter, yes sad but true. I've been doing the "bot while near my
computer" just to see what kind of things go on. I get called out in
local in which I respond to but still get reports.
I've had two
accounts slapped with the 1 week sanction but that was a while ago. I
generally don't bot now without myself being around, why? one players
in EvE tend to be asses, two once you know how a bot works its not hard
to spot others using some version of botting software. Three people
report because you are their competition. Everyone says this and i
believe its true... if you stay in the same system too long you WILL
eventually get busted and reported.
