I play on a Minecraft server (don't judge) that strictly bans macros. I'm unclear on what the technical definition of a macro is. I have buttons on the side of my mouse that I do bind to other keys, but I'm not sure if this is considered a macro (I'm not even sure if I'm using the word correctly). Please let me know if this is considered a macro and I would also like a proper definition of "macro" for future reference. Thanks!

A series of keystrokes or mouse clicks, all triggered in sequence by one action. Mouse click or single keystroke.

Press one key, and it:
Do A
Do B
Turn around 180 degrees
Do C
Shoot
Switch weapons
Shoot again

How do they detect it? No human can mouse click or type that fast.
