I can attest to the existence and wonderful humor of Robotlord. Much
intelligence and not artificial.

I had a summer job with the Forest Service one year. One guy in the
barracks wrote his girlfriend each evening. He would practice his
penmanship for a half-hour to a hour first. But then there wasn't
much else to do after work. He was a big football player sized guy.
It was amazing to see him actually cower by a chair one night when a
bat flew in.

Noone I know has seen Robotlord though. As one old post said, he is
really an artificial intelligence program written by MIT hackers.
