Probably the n008-est way to see if an article is being reposted using an api or manually

A lot of people do keep posting links via a script. Hell, I’ve done it too. Using the Facebook api to post at an hourly rate at a point.

One thing I did notice for understanding if someone is manually posting it or if it’s being run through a script is the fact that an apostrophe doesn’t show up as it is intended when run through a script. It shows up something like &nb53 or something like that.

Is this very stupid or is this extremely stupid?
