Bullshit. A bot would just run a check once an hour on its profile (using http://nullprogram.com/am-i-shadowbanned/), and see if it gets a page full of comments, or the giant picture. Code makes shadowbans not work. It's annoying for humans because, who the hell checks their profile? And that's the only way you can tell for sure.

In my experience, spammers don't really understand how reddit works, like, at all. I highly doubt they'd check for a shadowban, ergo, it's effective.

Look, I'm not the person who implemented them so I can't tell you more.

Then don't claim to offer facts when you don't even know what bots can and cannot do
