UserBot: The Necassary Evil

As mentioned in the recent blog posts, recently Telegram is flooded with many userbots,.

You might ask what is wrong with it? Everyone can start learning programming and development easily.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER: i might have generalized where it is not right to generalize stuff, so please pardon the generalization, if the generalization was a mistake.

but, as someone has said, every coin has two sides, and, for every good thing that userbots can be used for, there are some users, who try to exploit the users, and enjoy seeing other people suffar. (not the English suffer 😜😜)

I had pondered on what such users gain by doing this, and, I came to a conclusion, ...

as shown in the above video, most users of "the userbots" do not understand, what is happening under the hoods, and follow some instructions written in random GitHub repositories (or websites) blindly, and run commands, using their Telegram account. I guess, most users do not bother to read (or atleast understand) how the stuff works, and what are the implications of the actions performed by the user. Most users, just click on a BIG PINK button, use other random user's pre-hosted webpages (or, Telegram bots), enter their Telegram OTP, in these random webpages, and feel very satisfied, when megick happens by typing somethings in a Telegram Chat, or, enjoy irritating other Telegram users, who do not have experience in these things.

APWBD had rightly said, (in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows)

Yes, we have been given power and yes, that power gives us the right to rule, but it also gives us responsibilities over the ruled. We must stress this point, it will be the foundation stone upon which we build.

but, now the irritating behaviour has gone too far, by some wannabe crackers, who ask unsuspecting Telgram UserBot users, to share their Telegram Verification codes, to random third party bots, to see some megick without the need to deploy anything on our own.

I have also, seen, some users just replying .install text to random Telegram Documents or Images, apparently, wanting to witness sum megick.

You might have noticed, if you are used to using a GNU/Linux or MicrosoftWindows PC, that before performing a destructive action, you might be presented with the below screen, asking to confirm your action.

you might now ask, Why isn't such an option available for the publicly available userbots, the once which users deploy?

userbots were built by people to reduce their effort in performing long running actions, so adding such a feature is counter-productive in my opinion.

so, before running / executing any random command found on the Internet, please take the effort to read (and understand), what are the implications of such actions.
