Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

(That is, Ping being awesome doesn't give the Old Man and Sony free passes for anything they care to do downstream of that act of creation.) Or anything they did upstream of the act, either. Yes, indeed. (I had considered including "upstream" as well to refer back to the "why she was built" part of...

Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

Sorry, not buying it. To have someone walk up to a "girl" and play with her "ear bobble" only to have her reset to the mode she was in when she first appeared in comic, not remember anything that happened up to this point, and having a completely different personality? Where is the trauma? The clai...

Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

But AI's, or at least artificial personalities, should be developed without observing real personalities? If the goal were really to create an AI, to bring a new life into the world, that could potentially be a noble endeavor. Mapping out which "quirks" of behavior will trigger the most pay-to-play...

Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

She shoved him around, broke things, got angry and stormed off, all because of a point of view that essentially went "How dare you judge us by our personalities! How shallow!" No, that's pretty much the opposite of the "point of view" in question. "How dare you treat actual women as templates from ...

Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

I would like to add that if you are dating someone that throws dishes and has what is considered "not-a-tantrum" on dates normally, you should probably run away, at speed. Have some respect for yourself and get away from those sorts of people. I know that there is this mentality of "she is a prize ...

Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

So basically, Dr.Clueless is developing a product to exploit men's vulnerability, but it's women who are harmed by this? But it's ok as long as it's a "whole girl" who is manipulating some guy into paying her money just for the privilege of going on a date with her (where doubtless he's also expect...

Re: [1549] The sum of our parts

I'm not sure Ping's, well, "creator" is overly evil or perverted. At least not along the lines that Ping has assumed the compensated dating should go. I'd like to point out that when Ping came into the story, she started with blocks that prevented any H-actions with her. And as to the his using Junk...
