My little bot stuff isn't fancy and definitely not so called  
production code. It's a mess but if someone wants to look at it, you  
can download tar package (which probably includes unnecessary files  
too) from:

The bot is modified from bitchbot (bitch.pl). You must create a  
profile in the Facebook through which the bot posts stuff to facebook.  
In Facebook you have to add an application to group. If I remember
