It'll be a long way, if it's even possible, a bunch of mere electric circuits can become self-aware.

... but when the day comes: I welcome our new robot overlords.

So they programmed their AI with the FreeCiv manual that basically would play against the standard AI programmed with whatever the original developers programmed it with.

The Spammers Are Back. For a web site to call its self MaximumPC and yet be riddled with spam makes you people look incompitent and stupid. Go ask PC Gamer or PopSci how they clean up spam, and follow them.

You know what don2041? That's an excellent idea. I did ask PC Gamer how they clean up spam and Logan told me the following: We have no active spam filter on our site, but do have editors in two continents receiving spam reports and acting on them around the clock, which works very well for us. If we didn't have this kind of support, our comment experience would certainly suffer.

So, there's your answer: PC Gamer has a full-time staff literally working around the clock, dedicated to removing spam....vs our system which currently consists of me. Manually deleting spam as fast as I can. We do sincerely appreciate all of our readers being patient while we work on rolling out better solutions and we know it's not an ideal situation.

Also, we really liked the way you misspelled "incompitent" - very ironical.

HAHAHA!  Beautiful.  Amber, quick question.  If a reader sees SPAM that hasn't been deleted/noticed yet, and if we post a reply just saying "spam" or something, does that make it easier for you find it?  Or does it just add another entry you need to delete.  I and some other posters try to tag spam when we find it. Keep on trucking.
