What is qq.com?

I am curious what qq.com is exactly (it seems to be a bot domain). How does it function and what is its purpose? I am not very familiar with bots; any useful documentation into how they are used would be very insightful. What are some other bot domains that frequently access sites?

Yes, because unlike other social media companies, they choose the old icq (look it up, old times, one of the first pc internet messaging/chat programs) method of using numbers as a unique user ID, as opposed to usernames or email addresses. Hence, that's indeed a valid email address your wrote down there.

qq.com is NOT a bot domain. It's one of China's biggest social media site, for messaging on pc, mobiles , micro blogging etc.

Hi Kimputer,

That is very interesting. Is it common for these email addresses to contain only strings of numerical values followed by the @qq.com domain? (ex. 18073100@qq.com)
