I've actually foreseen this development a few years ago, because imho that's the only way to get real attention nowadays. For including spam.

My perception is that probbly the next few leaps in AI development will come from spammers - as you already observed : Getting a spam bot to infiltrate a forum will become the ultimative Turing-Test.

The other possibility is to actually "buy" Chinese workers for doing that. And I hope that everyone here already knows that article from the British newspaper The Guardian about corrupt Chinese prison "heads" who are forcing prison inhabitants to farm gold for wow …

Besides, about fengzi597 : I always find it odd that

a) the real name posted in the profile doesn't match the forum's name at all
b) a person posts the real name in a forum profile at all …

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
