My question is: can bots really do that or was I mislead? I know nothing about bots.
    The client controls the movement of the character.

    The client can be modified to allow characters to move in ways that are impossible with the normal client. All of those modifications are actionable of course. The client does check itself to see that it's intact but people have ways around that.

    You can do things like induce lag on the client to allow you to keep flying briefly when you enter a no-fly area. That's actionable too but unlikely to get you a ban unless you do it in front of a bunch of people, because it does occasionally happen in normal play.

    Apparently not, considering I was sitting in front of my computer. What I do is I have the gatherer addon running so I develop a pretty regular farming route. I've never botted on any blizzard games, but now, I probably will advocate for it because it doesn't really matter anymore.

    Well, if you do, don't do it here. Closing this as it seems that everything that needs to be said has been said.

    Discussing moderation is against the rules and makes a post liable for an infraction. Send a PM if that's not clear. Don't put it in a thread.
    Please report problem posts instead of responding to them.
    Forum FAQ. Read it.
    Post about the topic, not about one another.

    Treat me like anyone else unless you're breaking rules or we need to do site business. I play. I have likes and dislikes. We're not that different.
