the adjective in question

They say that “on the internet, no one knows you’re a dog” (although I reckon the bitches are usually easy enough to spot). It’s also sometime difficult to tell if the person you’re chatting to is real or a ‘chatbot’.

I reckon that Amy must be a bot –

– or possibly a transgender MtF who hasn’t reassigned adjective endings.

I didn’t try talking to Amy, so I don’t know how good the ‘Artifical Intelligence’ programming behind her is. I have played on the Cleverbot site, though, which can be a fun way to waste a while. (I don’t think there are any guarantees that Cleverbot’s replies will be ‘suitable for work’, though that may depend on what you say to her.)

For those who don’t recognise it, the post title is a nod at the Dorothy L. Sayers short story The entertaining episode of the article in question where the whole thing hinges on the misuse of a personal pronoun in French.
