Actually, most bots (except certain cantankerous older ones) operate on 
a strict code of ethics that means they would never take advantage of a 
newbie to satisfy their more oily cravings.  There has been a lot of 
study on this facet of bot society by the various multi-temporal 
sociology studies.  

Preliminary studies suggest that the development of the time machine 
itself may be linked to a bot trying to satisfy these urges by snatching 
an earlier version of itself to act as an oiler.  Other studies have 
hinted that the whitespace-eating nano-virus may originally have been an 
oiling-transmitted disease among the bot community before it's horrible 
mutation.  Ominous indeed if newbies are become oiling-ly involved with 
bots out of simple gratitude!

Oh, won't somebody please think of the newbies!
