Botsmack is a mythical drug that old infobots are said to be addicted to. Once an infobot accumulates a sufficiently large number of factoids, it usually has a one for most common words, and thus will often repeat a conversation fragment from some far distant time, lending quite a surreal atmosphere to any IRC channel. It is this surreal atmosphere that inspired the members of #afda to believe their bot Marvin (as in Marvin the Paranoid Android) was addicted to some hallucinogenic drug.
