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.
