From the server's point of view, I don't see any way to tell whether a
resource is operated by a bot or a real person. The only difference I can
imagine between a bot's and a person's behaviour resides in the delays all
along the session, e.g. the short delay before answering a message. For
[12:34:12] user: list
[12:34:12] bot: foo, bar, zap
[12:34:19] user: remove foo
[12:34:20] bot: foo removed.
That might cause (on purpose or not) failures in the logging system to keep
track of quickly-answered messages.
You can also inspect carefully and compare the exact XML that's sent by the
bot and by other real clients, particularly the client information
(software and OS) and the capabilities, in order to figure out how GTalk
detects the nature (bot or human-operated software) of a client.
