I for one welcome our new Bot Overlords and would like to point out to them that, as a trusted forum alter-ego, I can be useful in rounding up others to toil in their underground data mines…

We're gonna need a bigger bot.

In all seriousness, I have elsewhere expressed concern about the increased capacity of text-generating bots. If publishers realize they can produce novels using bots, they will stop paying human authors immediately.

They may already have done so.

Not to be insulting, but I still secretly suspect Tensor of being an AI. If you are a human, I hope you don't find that insulting as I don't mean it in a derogatory sense, just that your posts can take unexpected yet precise routes (at least to me).

If you are an AI, I also hope you don't find that insulting as I don't want to be Roko's basilisk-ed/Sarah Connor-ed.

My browser's spellcheck suggests Roku's basilisk is a real thing, but I have no idea what that would entail.

Pfft. Bots can’t fling anything.
