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.
"HELLO I'M TACTILE !" is an anagram of my name
