wasn't there talk once of some better way to prevent robots from getting in here? i mean, if they were cool robots, i wouldn't mind. especially if they were HONEST about their robotness. (and upright, with bipedal motion...that's damn challenging!!) but it seems that's the whole point of robots? is to lie and dupe someone?

oh but i could be called a dupe-er too....so maybe it's not the "lying" that bothers me, i wouldn't have a problem with a robot self-identifying as a human as long as it was for his/her/etc own desires and health and wellbeing...as long as it wasn't solely with the purpose of selling me an "inexpansive phun".

i can't remember where that talk was...of figuring out some way to clean it up a bit.

but it's not like they are hurting me or anything. if they want to have spambot sex with each other that's fine but i'm not buying any damn phones or webhosting services.

There was some talk way back about finding a way to discourage bots from accessing the forum.

I still think pushing them off the edge into a black hole is a good option. I'm just sayin'.

i have an idea:

we ask everyone a question that goes like so:

"which of these comments do you find humorous?

a) my monitor is a 15 inch

b) antidepressants come in several dosages

c) approximately x number of children die every year due to abuse and neglect

d) look: i drew a picture of an alligator having sex with a unicorn...ON A TRAPEZE!"

would that work? or do you find child abuse FUNNY?


..................................................................................................................anyways

my major reservations about it would be, what if we had a robot visitor who really WISHED he/she was human, and really BELIEVED they were human... is "robotness" just a social construct? i wouldn't want to cause a personal crisis for this robot by making him or her strip down in front of everyone.

Bender, my favorite robot of all time, would indeed find child abuse funny because he did it himself. However, I think he put himself above humans. Quite right, that.

Ok, real and fictional animals having a go on a trapeze is both funny and frightening. I'll choose that prize.

hmmm....bender.... he can be here as long as he doesn't constantly talk about a brand new HP printer or the inexpansive phun.

because, see, i am NOT a robophobe.

You, mere mortal, dare to question robot marketing?!!!

You apparantly have a problem with how this all goes. Here it is, very simply:

1) Buy stuff
2) Make sure you are seen using this stuff by any idiot(s) who will be impressed
3) Breathe a sigh of relief that you have been assimilated and are properly conforming

Anything else, as all the world will confirm for you, is insanity.

Really? Wow.
