Well, the original purpose of the bot was pretty sound (it does automatic spellchecking, and automating basic fixes to hundreds of articles rather than doing it by hand is a good idea), the problem is you can't trust a few lines of code to deal with the structure of a page. And that he shouldn't have started running a mass-editing bot without consulting people about what it should be editing.
