Shut down "cewbot"
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Please shut down tools.cewb@instance-tools-exec-1415.tools.wmflabs.org. It does nothing but to join/part the mediawiki-i18n IRC channel for no apparent reason. I asked at -labs if anyone had any idea what this was suposed to do, and no one could figure out. Thanks.

This is not the first complaint we have had of this bot spamming irc channels and creating chaos.

bd808 moved this task from Triage to Stalled on the Cloud-Services board.

After a month without reply from the operator I don't think we should continue that process to run so unsupervised when there are complains about how it is working.

I am sorry that it seems there are some bugs in my script. I have change some codes and trying to fix the problem.
Please call me anytime if there are still any bugs. Thank you.

Ok. So we can merge this task to T160907 and you can add some description for your bot, what it does and how to contact you.
