Somebody told me that a good way to mess with scripted/afk AH bots was to mass mail them junk items COD. Apparently that messes with most of the scripts for gathering items from the mail.eg: buy 100 apples for a few copper.. Mail them to the bot, one per mail, for COD of 200g. Since you can't script the gathering of COD items (nor returning them), this apparently keeps the top 50 slots tied up. They won't be able to do their automated cancel/repost cycle as they won't get the mail.Caveat: I have not tried this. I don't know what happens if they click 'report spam'. I know you can't script the sending of COD items either so you'd have to do it by hand. Sooner or later a human will come along and fix the mess, but you can supposedly ruin their day.
