    Watching this show on NOVA tonight makes me wonder who on USMB is a computer programed to respond as a human on a message board. I'm sure it is happening on some MB. The technology is here. A message board would be a perfect environment to perfect the conversational skills of a robot.

    Why not on USMB?

    OK fess up!!!! Which one or............How many of you are robots?

    :eek:

    Rdean would never pass a Turing test, but that does not make him a bot. I have not seen a bot as stupid as that since the 90s.

    I'm guessing DiveCon.

    Only a robot could generate 47,000 posts in 2.5 years (over 50 posts per day), while basically staying on it's pre-programmed message of "Republicans GOOD, Democrats BAD".
