    It's still jumbo, even after all the hyperbole!

    Octobot is an automated script (program) which looks for cephalopod-related news stories every morning and posts them around the same time I have coffee... By default they are posted as "moderated", which means they are only visible by me and Staff. I review the entries and approve the ones that I think are actually of interest to our community (plenty of false-positives on things like octopus food recipes, etc.).

    Yes they seem to coincide with the Neil Diamond tour schedule as well.

    I'm so glad this has been cleared up... it's something I've always wondered!
