If the Anti-Catalonians did use 'bots' to sway the vote, it would add significant weight to the idea that conservative factions have banded together in an attempt to use global cyber infiltration techniques to sway public opinion (and seem successful.) This smells of globalism more than anything the progressive have been accused of.

The side presumably using these "bots" according to my observance of news reports have been successful: the Brexit campaign, Trump's election, Putin's election (given as the Russian government has complete control over content), and the Anti-Catalonian secession.
