Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t. Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo : What are we holding on to, Sam?

Sam : That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.

Footage of Russian Botfarm by kalashnikov_go_brrr in nextfuckinglevel

It's not a Russian botfarm, it's an interview/report in russian, of a Chinese company that provides botting services.

Source: they tell it in the background in russian, am russian.

On a side note, russian botfarms are using virtual machines with modified android. You can run 64 of those on a decent PC, and there's software to orchestrate the effort.

I remember a story where a little boy and his family were at a beach. A large wave rushed in and deposited a huge number of star fish on the beach. So the kid started picking them up and tossing them back into the water. An old guy watching him yelled out, "You can't save them all." and the boy, holding a starfish said, "But I can save this one" and chucked it into the ocean.

I have always remembered that story and still try to remember it no matter how daunting a problem is. You don't have to save them all. But save what you can.
