Yes, I would imagine so. Seeing as how you must enter that Caption when making an account, which most computers can not bypass. (Says the robot, of course)

Yea do you think they are robotic ask employees or just people addicted to ask getting a false sense of accomplishment?

Take. Me. To. Your. Leader.....wait that's aliens. Seriously, I don't think a robot could answer questions. I've seen those answers and I've wondered if they weren't employees-human employees.

Most people on here are younger teens that are looking too kill some time online, some teachers and various other people who orginally came here too ask a question ended up staying too help other people out with problems. alot of people are here becuase theres an app for the iphone or they have alot of life experienced most of the community is real. None of the employees as far as I know have accounts also, this is just a community of various people asking and answering questions, occassionally you get someone trying too sell stuff on here though.

like your name in particular many of the members do not show their real name but they are real individuals -yes i agree with you that few answers are indeed robotic giving answers like- idk- yes- no.etc

The "people" I'm talking about have answered thousands of questions, never have asked a question, never comment, have nothing in their profile, and usually put a link to something unreliable like Wikipedia.
Report as
yes i can see your point very true -perhaps they feel that they have no quest to be asked or they feel below their dignity to ask favours
Report as
They just don't seem "human" when they won't comment at all.
Report as
i have seen your profile and you too have asked only one quest as against many answers given by you- what have got yo say about it?????????????
Report as
Exactly I have something in my profile! These "people" have nothing and will never comment like I am now!;)

Hi, honey. I'm with you. But maybe for a different reason. Sometimes I can't believe they're real because of the callous, sometimes just mean answers that are given. It just breaks my heart at how some of the answer, I know, have to hurt the feelings of the person who asked the question. And the people that come on here and say, "idk" or "what kind of question is that?" Argh. I just think, why did you come on here just to say that? >:-o

I agree with Sissymom but you can't stop who people are thats just the way of nature

Yeah, Caitie, I know you're right, but it just absolutely brings tears to my eyes sometimes and sometimes it really gets my feathers ruffled to. I usually don't take up so much for myself, but I'll take up for others. O.o.

The " people" I am thinking of are the ones who never comment, have answered thousands of questions, have never ask a question, and sometimes put links to unreliable sites. The ones that answer I don't know, idk, or just are ignorant and rude I try to ignore.
Report as
Gotcha. Boy, sometimes I just can't ignore them, though, and have to open this big mouth of mine and ask them why can't they just go to automotives and tell somebody how to change their oil. (I'm awful. Go ahead and say it.) O_O

So human 101 last i checked maybe i did become unhuman in the last hour but most likely the possibilities of that are 0 out of 100,000,00,000. So still human so I believe everyone is a human being on here unless a dog or another animal knows how to work ask.com and a computer or phone or ect well you get my point ALL human beings

I think some people are just afraid to get to personal . Plus ask.com is making it harder to converse and are becoming more strict with there "rules" they say this is not a social website , but when you ask a question you want a honest response not a robotic yes or no . I know what you mean

I've wondered that too, sometimes the answers are formed in such a way that it seems scripted.

I'm real. The question here is, are you? How do I know you're not just a robot, asking this question to throw us all of the scent?

Nice to meet you! Well I am real. The ones I am asking of are the people who would never comment ever. I think ask is an interesting place, but some seem to lack humanity on ask.
Report as
Nice to meet you, too! Yeah, some people do seem robotic, but I tend to ignore them and concentrate on the people with personality, such as yourself.Keep looknig around and you'll find some people who are interesting and have good senses of humour, as well as knowing a lot and so they can answer lots of questions.

Your answer is obsolete. Do not worry. Your are safe. Go home and watch lots and lots of television. Buy Microsoft products. Do not retire. Add to the economy until you die. Good luck.
