The Goat (bot)
"The Goat" and later as "thegoat" was a bot running the MegaHAL client component of the hx Hotline client, and was featured on the preterhuman.net Hotline server as early as 2001. The bot was configured to listen to all public chat on the server and provide responses when the ability was manually enabled on the bot's user account. The core database used by the MegaHAL client eventually becomes corrupted when it reaches too large of a size, so The Goat was reset a few times over it's lifetime. This is a collection of the more memorable bot quotes.
