A Spambot is the monster of the 21st Century: lean, mean and full of wires.
It came with the GodWeb, the internet for all gods. But some unqualified god-wannabes, filled with revenge, wanted to take over and possibly destroy the GodWeb. The group of anti-Webinaries built special programs, then coaxed their Godly friends to install these programs onto the GodWeb. They were the very first Spambots.
The heros populating GodWeb first saw a bundle of wires shouting gibberish without a license.
