It's just struck me how much these forums are like the gong show. They'll let you go and let you go and once your performance becomes boring or stupid...gonnnng, pictures of ponies or kittens or something.

Well, we used to have Dennis for gong duty, but nowadays we have to make do with whatever silly shit we have on hand.

It seems like a pretty good method.

I should probably try to find some eps of the Gong Show. I've never seen it.

Sorry for not replying to someone, since I was somewhat busy traveling and bored of it anyway.

So, fembots.

First of all, the main problem with their treatment in the comics seems to be not their effects on society but the fact that they are sentient beings with wishes and desires of their own, and their desires, or even the possibility to be educated and shown the whole world so they can form any desires beyond "please my masters"/"kill people" (etc.) are not being satisfied. Allegorically, they're the women being affected rather than the things generating those effects.

So the question in some ways is about whether you can ensure that self-aware entities aren't being abused, like fembots...could be, if they overrode their base programming. However, base programming allowing for the enjoyment of that stuff, plus standard legal protection could help in that regard.

Actually, that raises questions in my mind. How do they design fembots to always enjoy their users? Do they put in different specifications for each? Is it an "imprinting" thing? If it is an imprinting thing that raises other moral questions, actually. Hrm.

As for societal effects, I'll get to that in a bit.

Did you really register just to resurrect a dead thread so you could talk about fucking robots?

iFork, do you happen to be following Penny-Arcade's "Automata" story? Just curious because some of the things you mention in your post reminded me of it.
