Sorry, maybe colleague gave me the wrong information. Moving forward I am one for sharing etc but maybe you could have the bot programmed to not send the post back to the original post. That would be more ideal to me but guess it's personal preference, some people might like seeing a reply to their own post with their own post but I just don't get it. Perhaps its the database management side of me that does not put the same data in twice 🙂
Despite difference of opinions of what you should or should not do I wish you all the best with your venture.
