I believe the ad forum is at least 60% bots. But hey, I could be wrong.
I don't think so. Form the very little I know, there are real hosts behind the ads. I was remarking on how few applied, but there are hundreds of hosts represented on here.
I see it as more of the Template effect. When a marketing manager gets his formula down for the shelf offerings, it's a cut and paste operation. That's not a bot.
