Based on the Topic Omelets and Egg Dishes => http://hubpages.com/food/omelets-and-egg-dishes/1500
which still includes a sprinkling of omelet (hated by Editbot) and omelette (UK spelling the bot loves), it appears that Editbot has been banished. Is the bot due for a revival? Was the trial unsuccessful?
Editbot was not run on Topic pages. I also disabled the omelette/omelet rule. We will be running another round of Editbot corrections soon, so stay tuned!
Just kidding, I don't think anybody still hates the little critters anymore.
I'm okay with the ones in the text; I can see where they are useful, but I do not like the ones in the "comments" section.
If it is making the corrections, which I assume it is, then I have no problem with them cleaning up messed up comments.
I ignore the black "bots" (the comment ones) now. I find that nine times out of ten, the bot's correction is right, which means my comments are more correct than they were before - so I'm happy to leave them that way.

Everybody is wondering how the team plans to remove the editbots from the stats pages. Apparently they are there to indicate that edits have been made so that writers can check their articles for correctness, but...
