Paperbot is an IRC bot that fetches academic papers. It monitors all conversation for links to scholarly content, then fetches the content and posts a public link. This seems to help enhance the quality of discussion and make us less ignorant. When a link fails to lead to a pdf with the zotero translators, paperbot will not attempt further downloads of the paper unless paperbot was specifically spoken to.

It would be nice to use multiple proxies to resolve a pdf request.
