A lot of the MSM newsfeed during the past couple of months has been in response to twitterbots that would create a fake twitstorm of "reactions" to a fake event.

This response sounds fair to me - now the twitterbots can yell at each other and can ignore them.
We need someone to build one of these to replace the scrolling text at the bottom of Fox News.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

@5 well, it did take a while. I used Fnarf as a template.
"All scientific work is incomplete - whether it be observational or experimental. All scientific work is liable to be upset or modified by advancing knowledge. That does not confer upon us a freedom to ignore the knowledge we already have, or to postpone the action that ist appears to demand at a given time. "Who knows, asked Robert Browning, but the world may end tonight? True, but on available evidence most of us make ready to commute on the 8:30 the next day." - Sir Austin Bradford Hill

"Climate alarmist," huh?

Way to poison the well, you sack of soggy shit.

Are you trying to imply that we can't conclude or act on anything while we're in the process of questioning? Because that's a good fucking way to never get out of bed again. "Did the sun come up this morning? If I open my eyes, will they tell me the correct answer or am I delusional? Will I still have a job if I go to work?"

Argh, why am I feeding the trolls? I should know better than to post when I'm in a bad mood.
Good for him! Now he just needs to make one for evolution.
What a great idea! Using science and technology against the people who are confounded by having to put a stamp on an envelope or use the heater in their car.

By the way, it might not be due to us, and all our efforts to mitigate it might be in vain, but that doesn't mean we should pretend it does not exist.

The same people who deny climate change think Pi is equal to 3.00 (or should be, to make math easier for their idiotic kids).
How long before the Cato Institute hires a programmer to write a climate science denial script and the two bots proceed to fill up page after page of twitter feeds arguing with each other?
In all reality It's not a particularly great Bot, it posts the same small number of weak responses to a small number of keywords with monotonous regularity. The person in control engages directly but is equally unconvincing.

Please wait...
