Ok I just re did some testing on Carbon 1.7.9.
When I turn the bot on (either Auto Bot or Bot Manager), it shows Go to and whispers off but I can still Go To and whisper.
This wasn't the case when I was using the bot a couple months ago though.
Even when I flick it back on, when I re-open the settings window, it'll still show them off.
I guess ill continue using it for now and keep testing it just incase.
