Dedicated user of WPCleaner.
Account used by NicoV when using WPCleaner in bot mode. This account has the bot flag.
If you think the bot has made a mistake during an edit, please contact the bot operator directly, rather than simply reverting its edit (it's a bot, it will probably apply the same modification again in the future, and it's not going to be tired of doing so...).
