I don't disagree, just don't want to do that lightly. Most certainly
not before we have comments from the bot owner.

I have to say, I never spent more than a few minutes looking up
failing bots. If there's nothing that I can find in 30 seconds of
looking at the bot screen, I rely on the bot owners to ping me, revert
my patches, let me know what's wrong.

I'll make your words, mine:
