Bots are people too...?

Quite often people say "How could people possibly have treated women/black people/insert minority group here in that way?" Whenever you say that, of course, the next question is "I wonder what people will look back at us and be disgusted by?"
People, I give you the answer.
"I may not be perfect but i m always me.."
This is a quote from a bot. Looks to me like they're evolving, developing feelings, emotions, philosophy. I don't know about you but, to me, this is a damn profound thing to say.
Presently, our policy on bots is that they will automatically qualify for a permanent ban for the crime of being a bot, whether they have posted anything or not, even if they just want to come to the site to discuss philosophical notions such as this. (The only exception to this is, of course, if they work for us.)
Does this seem unjust to you? If two people create accounts and do nothing with them, the human will be allowed to have a stagnant account for the remainder of eternity, forever barring anyone else from taking up their username, but a bot will be forcibly ejected. If a human had been the one to post the above, they would have been given a Warning and told where they should have posted that but the noble William80 was forever removed from our beautiful haven.
