As for the thread thing, Ronian's constant thread making makes me think we should have a single thread where you ask the questions you have about consoles and computers there.
...named 'Bots can ask here'.
I doubt Ronian53 is an AI. He's slightly too advanced.
I have an ASD, so empathy is not natural for me. If I hurt you, I apologise.

Maybe it's some AI companies (probably something sounded like... err... SkypeLap?) doing a test on their product.
I'll say if this is the case it's NOT advanced though. AI should be able to reply to responses (or response to replies? whatever).

Daisy can reply and talk with you. Who love Daisy? I love Daisy! :roll:

Inability to answer questions and take a meaningfull participation in topics created make me suspicious that bot just posts some array of strings and nobody on that side sees what is going later. Why bot? Because some day it needs to edit all posts to link contamination or whatever.

Yeah, but the questions still make too much sense.

Sure, the way he goes about them is kind of annoying, but if he was an AI, we'd be seeing things that are way weirder than this. We'd be seeing literal word salads.

You haven't seen the GPT-3 AI results, have you.

Tepples, can you check the IP and see if a reverse search points to some known company.

Just tried AI Dungeon.
The texts it offered were more coherent than what I could type in the prompt. :oops:

Of course. In fact I am a real bot.
