    I couldn't stand him. He was worse than a human.

    Roland would have understood.

    I think he was designed that way, even though I hate to think something would be created a evil, heartless, trader, because,

    Heartless? You mean there are robots who have a heart?
    Anyway...
    I have asked it before not here but I am interested in your opinion:
    Can robots have feelings?

    Roland would have understood.

    I would think they could if programmed to.

    Stutering-Bill certainly seemed to have them, and the little gardians at the portal of the Bear.

    Also, if you've ever seen the Animatrix you would see why

    That's just one thing what they seemed to have.
    I mean... if you can see that a robot in a book (or in a movie) has feelings it doesn't mean that in real life they can have feelings. It means only one thing that the author of the books thinks they can have feelings.
    Does it make any sense?

    Roland would have understood.

    Yes it does.

    To tell the truth, all things are created with a purpose, but if created by humans have flaws.

    If I ever meet a true robot, I shall ask him. But, I believe you may be right my dear

    Cry your pardon?

    I meant the bad side is the side of the wolves.

    That's what I hear.

    The more I think about Andy, the more I wonder how many rogue robots were around back in the day. Not that he would be "rogue" in the sense he worked for the opposing team, just in the sense that he obviously made decisions for himself.

    Sometimes you have the best typos.

    Rouge is red, I think what you meant was rogue.

    That was my laugh for the day.

    Typically, advanced AIs are portrayed as having not only reasoning capabilities but also emotions. Personally, I think that in our not too distant future, we will see this in the real world. As such, yes robots can have feelings. Oh and Andy is a scumbag.

    Yeah, he was a supercilious fuck, for sure. I find that really irritating.
