I consider Paul a member of the dog pack who
won't bite his ilk but every so often he will pose
a question that may be considered as nibbling
at their heels like a cute puppy... :) and he never
pursues issues he raises to the point of causing
any real damage to his ilks... ;)
What I find also interesting here is the concept
of "real positions". A human could never create
a position like his example on purpose but could
create other positions unfamiliar to bots, (which
become idols of good sex through masturbation
and use of dildos like cube skill formulas applied
to cubeless equities), in order to beat them bots.
Maybe humans like me should consider those as
"positions unfair to the bots" also..?

Axel, why do you waste your life fabricating excuses
to deny realities, including of your own findings..?

Have you folks noticed that I have been improving
my tactful language skills for a while now..? (i.e.
rooster eaters instead of cocksuckers, chocolate
smoothie slurpers instead of shit lickers, etc...
And so, "cow cake" instead of "bullshit".. :) And I
guess Axel's Isight would be the "Icing" on it...! ;)
