This was made for a clarification. BOT and bot are spelled the same, yet mean different things. This is where you can learn which is which!
This form of the word is an acronym for Back On Topic! That's why each letter is in capitals! Now for the other one.
This word is not an acronym. It's actually a robot. You know the one the keeps on closing topics (especially the drawing one!) and starting bot wars? Yes, that's the one. Bot is just a short name for robot.
I hope this clarified things!
Did this help?
