Just curious how PeterReader is a Subscriber and is Trusted? Has he paid his $25 annual fee and will he do so every year? Perhaps someone else is paying his subscription? This robot is also Trusted - have you met him personally or has he attended a Geekzone pizza evening?

If no one has met him personally or seen him at a pizza night I'd be suspicious about his credentials!

My avatar met PeterReader in a virtual reality meeting room - and it wasn't Second Life.

As for being a subscriber, he works for us 24/7, so I gave him the benefits.

Peter and John were once captured by a certain administrator, and their DNA was taken, he then grew some brain cells by combining the best traits from the DNA and linked the end product to the Geekzone server.

So yes, PeterReader is real and works for Geekzone, all his yearly income went to the Subscription to support the only thing he can possibly do, shame he can't physically make it to the pizza nights but this is what you get with having a trusted subscriber growing on a petri dish.

freitasm: You mean, like the borg?



Indeed, has PeterReader evolved outside of the petri dish?

Is Peter overlooked and underpaid? I can see Employment Court being involved...

If you're referring to the real Peter he's well looked after, I make sure to occasionally feed him both caffeine and food.

Perhaps we should report PeterReader to the GCSB for spying on us without permission. I'm sure Kim Dotcom would have something to say about this.

Funny how he only participates if he finds keywords that trigger a robotic reaction. Sounds very similar to what spying agencies do worldwide.
