I think 'Never' is a bit strong, but on the whole I agree with your sentiments. I don't believe AIs are anywhere near being 'people', and they may never be (but if they can achieve that state then they should be allowed to join in).

Of course, that isn't the issue here as Microsoft and others who would misuse the AIs will be satisfied with something that merely passes for human in the narrow context of a comments section.
