Most people don't like bots, as they are blemed for the gerenal slowness of the e-donkey network. Many servers does not allow them.

Grab the server.met file and overwrite the one you use. I suggest doing it frequently (once a week) as while you are connected more servers are added to your list.
It takes some time, but I can get many ware... ops, rare programs this way
