That’s the kind of response I would expect from a bot.

I'm an organic carbon-based Bot, and even after 20,000 post I am still not banned from the forum.   8)

So, are any of them N scale modelers? Seems like they could have some advantages over us biological units.  Microscopic vision, digital accuracy for part placements, spectroscopic paint matching.  Can we convince them to start a model railroad products manufacturing company?  Just paying them in kilowatt-hours would be pretty cheap, right?
