Hold on, are bots really a thing? And did people actually stop long enough to read that text?

What a drymounting joke Bottleneck.....hope you are reading this and that you see that your "bot blocker" just made a lot of pissed off customers who will probably think twice about buying something from you in the future.....

What a stupid drymounting move

In this hobby, if you pause to read a drop down you will miss anyway.

Dammit, kinda shitty but whatever.

Honestly I think all the bot prevention did was mess with people, because I'm sure bots still back-doored their way in. I mean no one has time to read on a drop where there is only 50 to just furiously click when something pops up.

Probably largely bought by people who aren't actually "good" at this. Which is fine, it's just annoying to strike out by a method to block what is mostly a myth
