Me and my girlfriend were just watching this anime called Chobits (Google/YouTube it). On this one episode titled "Chi Plays", Hideki bought an mmo that, for some strange reason, resembles a lot like WoW. Hideki hooks up to the internet with along with this Persecon named "chi". Mind you Chi is a fem bot of sorts. So, if Chi is a machine with the capacity to learn and she's playing a character in an MMO, isn't that technically botting.

For those of you who don't know anything about "Chobits", consider yourselves lucky. I was forced against my will to watch it by my girlfriend.

You know you could have done this in a much less emasculating way.....
Like citing Legion in Mass Effect 2.

- Suspected use of hacking for direct server access (tactics better than possible without knowledge of underlying code behavior); challenged and overturned
- Unsportsmanlike behavior (taunting during Crystal Genophage Elimination Platinum); accepted 3-day account suspension


But i would say that a sentient machine would not be botting.
It'd be the same crime as forcing chinese prisoners to farm for gold.

That being said, Chi was hacking the game in that episode. So while not botting she was sploiting.

Well, I watched a few episodes a good while ago, but I was kind of "meh" about it so I didn't bother watching it all (many more far more interesting ones).
Hmm, I wished my future wife would force me to watch anime. She doesn't like it, but I do Razz

I blame the CLAMP.

it does get interesting in the end tho, but there are far more interesting "transhuman"-type series out there.

Any series that required 3 recap episodes isn't worth it.
