@Ondis Civil War is a fickle mistress. All the power to you for signing back up for more!
Hats off to the champions who ride the edge of the envelope.
True north strong and free
@alkexr I think you mistake my tendency to not want to fight with a dedication to pacifism.
I am not afraid to fight for fear of loosing... I resist fighting for the very reason of what cost my winning will incur on both my foe and myself. I always listen... I talk when I want to... and I fight only when its necessary.
Perhaps I am missing something in the history of the conversation... or perhaps I am missing some aspect of where things went wrong... but I don't view him as a troll.
@alkexr Nothing. As near as I can tell you have been a prefect gentlemen. What I am saying is don't worry about the content or nature of the criticism. Nothing that has gone on in this thread is over the line.
All I am saying is that if you are going to discuss your opinions openly in a blind forum, you need to take the criticism with more than just a grain of salt. Anonymity makes even the most cowardly brave.
Unfortunately, in this situation other than some mild derogatory statements... there is nothing here to warrant any kind of intervention.
@alkexr I don't think moderation is necessary. Active discussion is to be applauded! Opposing views (within reason) are something to celebrate and are often the cornerstone of great leaps forward in thinking.
Don't let down votes dissuade you from you views. Constructive input to any conversation is the key to any lively discussion.
Sometimes the "lost in translation" factor of using expressly the written word can cause misunderstandings (not to mention when people are trying to express their thoughts in a tongue that is not their native tongue). Not something to loose any sleep over.
Outside of the intricacies of the debate... I think the one real question becomes how feasible is any of this with only 1 guy working on the AI at his leisure. The leaps and bounds that have already been achieved seem mind boggling to me for a single guy trying to patch together improvements on his own in his spare time.
Any grandiose plans we might have would likely need more resources to be achievable.
