Now showing numbers and figures on total number of bans. Total number of bans to date is 3945.
The goal was not to ban lots of botters – the goal was to change behavior and make it no longer a worthwhile thing to do.
Now talking about ban 3 strikes policy (1st offense Bot, 14 day ban, 2nd offense, 30 days, 3rd offense, permanent). 527 suspected accounts unsubscribed, 987 are currently active (Subscribed and not banned again).
146 are currently serving out another ban. This puts the botting re-offense rate at 8.5%. Wow. That means a drastic drop.
not sure whether to laugh or cry
I guess this is the security blog CCP Sreegs was talking about long ago. Good to read it.
So far, the Bot Grief channel that Ninjaspud created has been quite dormant for far too long. Since then, I left the channel thinking no one uses it anymore. At the very least, I try to take note as to who mines around me and how they operate. In the mean time, I have more plans to go back into nullsec with my stealth bomber alt and see if I can catch any botters.

Regions like Outer Passage, Oasa, Cache, The Spire, Malpais etc are littered with hundreds of bots out of reach from your normal roaming gang.
Thanks for the tip.
