Eh? Rosasecta sent us an earlier version like a year ago, I happened to see it online and it sent me to a newer one, and I invited it to chat for a visit.
When I saw the moderating capabilities, I worked out some way it would stay. The bot's owner (Krissy) came by our chat, saying we were the people that seemed most excited about it, and made me a half-op.

Except for users who have become parameters to the .block command, anyone can use the non-moderating commands of the bot. Only chat moderators can use the standard moderation commands (e.g. ban, bomb, delete, Russian Roulette), and only half-ops and ops can use the advanced moderation commands (e.g. block).

.ban is exactly what it sounds like, but with the additional option of unbanning the user at the end of a predefined amount of time in seconds, minutes, or hours when used in the following format:
.ban lowercase_username [for durationunit of time]
.bomb is a nasty "pre-ban" that, once attached to a user, will delete all posts by the user and ban that user the next time (s)he makes a post in chat.
.delete deletes all chat posts by a particular member.
.rr simulates the lethal game of Russian Roulette by giving the targeted user a random 5/6 chance of being unaffected (represented by a bot post with the text "*click*") and a random 1/6 chance of being banned. It's like taking a pistol, emptying all but one of the six bullets from the barrel, spinning the barrel until you don't know in which of six positions the single bullet is, and shooting yourself in the head, except you get banned instead of killed.

I don't plan to, although I can't rightfully speak for anyone else. Indeed, after an accident I caused concerning the .bomb command, I promised myself not to use that command except under duress as caused by chat raids or similar events.
