This idea might sound absurd at first, but if bots are here to stay in Foldit's in-game chat, then maybe those bots that serve only the interests of individuals could be placed into a "bot channel". This will prevent the input to bots, and output from bots, from being shown to everyone using the in-game chat boxes.
The existing "gringer_irssi" bot would fit into this category. If a user wishes to make use of this bot (and other individual use bots), they could do so within the "bot channel", without disrupting other people's in-game chat box experience.
If the Foldit project management decides to implement a policy that restricts the use of bots, this suggestion will likely be closed by myself.
