I broke the bot today, but now it's alive again.

Previously the bot posted by simulated mouse clicks and simulated keyboard entry, due to the cloudflare protection thing that breaks everything. It was an ugly hack, and required a dedicated notebook posting, since it was basically simulating a user moving the mouse and typing.

The new bot version that I am testing now has a method to process the cloudflare protection and then post directly using WINHTTP. Much better and does not require a dedicated computer.

Also I can detetect post sucess and save the post URL.

I am working in a crawler bot to craw the news sites and update a list of news articles to post, automating the archive.is link

This comment is for me more than anything else. If you made it to here congratulations!

Can you put the brackets at the end of the title? It's good info but too much chaos at the beginning, and visually processing the titles at a glance on the sub is clunky.

Having seen the number of videos just posted by Fox News' Youtube channel when I was showing off YouTube subscriptions to my parents, I do not believe that this will end well...

Wow, really cool idea! I hope the bot doesn't get overwhelmed.
