PeterReader is great, but sometimes replies where it really doesn't make sense.  Case in point: 

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=90&topicid=144302

How about allowing users to include a codeword in their post to prevent him from replying a post?  (#goawaypeterreader? :P)   If said codeword is detected in a post, he won't reply, even if it matches whatever other rules are in place for triggering his posts.

It'd be more fun if we had a seemingly random phrase like "And the horse that they rode in on".

Restrict ability to block PeterReader to those with 100+ posts or something :-)






Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

You are hurting PeterReader's feelings now. Watch out for the bot attack :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

What about "All hail King of Robots" instead?

How did you manage to get to be an "Uber Geek" by just saying the same stuff over and over again? Reminds me of some people I know...

I'd say go in the complete opposite direction, and actually build on PeterReader's features.

I would like to officially suggest a feature called 'Hey, it looks like you're...'

And so when you detect they are writing a post in say Offers in Wanted, Peter Reader would say 'Hey, It looks like you're selling something, would you like me to show you the rules'

 

I also think there should be a re-design of the UX elements of PeterReader, to bring him up to todays standards.  I'm thinking a slim line metal look, but with a face so it doesn't look too daunting - Almost like he/she has a real personality. 

 

I've found a great photo on the internet to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.
