Re: I feel left out

I seriously considered recently whether an El reg commentard was a bot. The comments they made seemed very erudite - yet I wondered if that could be just "stock" replies triggered by certain keywords that had been mentioned.

What aroused my suspicions was the way things were often misinterpreted. Now that may just have been a human trolling - or was it a bot trolling?

It's getting to a strange state of affairs when you find yourself applying the Turing Test to online conversations.
