CCP - Publish the names of all bot characters and make them global criminals.

OR

Create a skill called "Concord Enforcement". At LVL I you get to kill bots in 1.0 systems, and at LVL V you get to smoke bots anywhere in highsec AND you get the benefit of immediate cyno transport to, and Concord escort in, Nullsec where you get to smoke bots as they are located. I'm thinking a dialog like this:

"CONCORD has located a BOT violator in FZZY-01 (-0.01). Do you wish to respond and enforce? C / D?"

Poof. You cyno out into nullsec where you are now flashing gold - NO ONE gets to shoot you while you hunt bots. You only get to shoot bots. The Russians (and the eight other guys out there) get to cry because now they have to actually be actively involved in mining and stuff. As soon as the bot goes splooey you are immediately cyno'd back to your regular scheduled mayhem.

Death to all bots.

Or they could, you know, just ban their accounts.
Seems like a lot less programming, tbh.

Well, yeah. If you want to be all logical about it. Where's the fun in that though? Wink

it does however fall victim to the flaw that if they know the bot is Botty McNotaPlayer sending you to kill him can fail because of bot scripts,

banning Botty McNotaPlayer is 100% certain to work and permabanning all his alts and any other accounts of the same owner really gets the message across,

that said Technitium is the new botting so expect a reduction in bots now,

You can already fight bots in hisec by simply suicide ganking them. It's really not that hard or expensive (especially if your target happens to have officer mods that are dropped instead of destroyed).
