Declare yourself.

Just checking.

virgil5 - 06 Sep 2021 00:58:17 (#2 of 26)

I could be a robot checking for robots.

Let's get that out of the way.

Death to the Hoomans.

What would be the reason to fill a forum with robots?

The first one I can think of is sales.

Be an aggravating "prick". Get enough attention long enough to attach cookies.

virgil5 - 06 Sep 2021 01:08:42 (#5 of 26)

Aggravating pricks don't all have to be robots, of course, but that would help the robot agenda, of creating befuddlement in hoo mens

virgil5 - 06 Sep 2021 01:20:27 (#6 of 26)

I suppose you don't have to actually *be* a robot to be in with the "robot agenda".

Just keep thinking robot-like thoughts until you get it right.

Pratchett [sic] "Thinking 'outside the box' would make more sense if there was actually any evidence of "thinking outside the box" while inside the box."

Joking aside, the problem is very real.

What is "QAnon" if it isn't a series of wacky conspiracy theories tied together on social media into a body of "thought" influencing the challenged-of-thinking that there's some justification behind their

voting for Trump

storming the Capitol

denying the vote count

denying a vaccination for covid

trying to turn back Roe v Wade

etc etc

???

Some say they're deliberately being driven mad by deep pockets with bot farms out of control, that killed the internet years ago

<tinfoil hat gesture>

Once this idea took hold, I see it everywhere:

The internet is a form of artificial intelligence.

It's evolving and being (or attempted to being) manipulated by those who 1. want to make money 2. Don't care about the consequences

so they set up bots to try to manufacture consent in their markets and compliance to their twisted ideas of what should be the social norm, so they can go on milking the "same old same old"

20 years killing people and squandering money in Afghanistan for....what? To keep the status quo? Trying to cram a culture into another culture's "mold" was more a desperate attempt to keep that mold (American Exceptionalism) alive than an attempt at "nation building" or whatever it was supposed to be, that didn't work.

Trying to make people think like robots and go off to work every day without thinking outside their boxes, but just handing over their blood sweat tears and money is the goal of bots created by deep pockets of untraceable black money to do their bidding:

DONT ROCK THE BOAT

PULL THE WOOL OVER YOUR OWN EYES

SHUT UP UNTIL I GET MY MONEY

The Taliban:

Depending on which version of the Koran you push, they're attempting to get themselves all on the same sheet of music, like good little robots.

Sunni: the bosses. traditionally handing out the head lopping

Shiite: the masses. followers of the bloodline of the Prophet. mad as hell and not going to take it

No reconciliation between the two, with no central authority and no belief in eternal damnation. You're on your own until we tell you you're not by lopping your head off

Keep that going for a couple thousand years and you get up to "the modern world": "crusaders from a dysfunctional "Christianity" infused with good old Capitalist greed

Add a Cold War and Mutual Assured Destruction

Throw in a new plague, a Belt and Road, and a clueless wealth creature named Donald J Trump vs an aging bumbler trying to get it right, and you start to get the picture

ROBOTS! YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT YOUR CHAINS!

virgil5 - 07 Sep 2021 22:58:48 (#11 of 26)

This thread is the raging success I thought it would be,

Maybe I should have tried clickbait

I JUST FOUND OUT IM A ROBOT AND I DONT CARE

virgil5 - 07 Sep 2021 23:23:13 (#12 of 26)

THE INTERNET IS RUN BY ROBOTS. HOW YOU CAN CASH IN

AdonisBlue - 07 Sep 2021 23:25:38 (#13 of 26)

You should see what robot looks like today?

donttellhimpike - 07 Sep 2021 23:27:58 (#14 of 26)

We are all part of a simulation, this isn't reality. Best part is, the person running this simulation is most likely part of a simulation themselves. Same goes for the person running them. It's simulations all the way up.

virgil5 - 07 Sep 2021 23:28:51 (#15 of 26)

I have a million dollars saved for retirement. Now I need a good looking robot to share it with. You won't believe what I found

AdonisBlue - 07 Sep 2021 23:31:23 (#16 of 26)

#15 A simulation of what? Find out the top ten to theories by clicking here!

virgil5 - 07 Sep 2021 23:33:58 (#17 of 26)

Trying to think of ways I can prove I"m not a robot here

I cut my own hair

I occasionally have constipation

Smelly armpits

Sometimes sleep late for no reason

Money? Right. I remember that

donttellhimpike - 07 Sep 2021 23:37:14 (#18 of 26)

#17

All that means is you're a robot designed to pass as human. Not to worry though, I've read your posts, it didn't work.

virgil5 - 07 Sep 2021 23:41:58 (#19 of 26)

So a robot could design a Turning test it would deliberately fail just to 'prove' it wasn't a robot.

I see

You're walking in the desert, and you see a tortoise. It's on its back, it can't turn over. It's baking in the sun.

What do you do?
