Please note that not all "botnets" are bad.  Many IRC bots, such as Eggdrop or
Emech create a 'chat botnet' where their owners can chat with each other.  Both
of these programs are legitimate programs that people run on unix shells that
they pay ~10USD/mo for.

Please don't kill the meaning of "botnet" like Steve Gibson and Cnet did in the
past.  The DDoS viruses are in the minority among IRC robots.
