Always felt list should have a bot or two looming around. One trick that the pundit bot in the old chat room used is to take a bunch of quotes from someone, break the sentences into separate clauses and index the words (throwing out the first few thousand most common english words). Then when you say something it collects "relevant clauses" and strings together a certain number of clauses to produce a "sentence" ha ha. Seems like a mailing list bot could use similar approach, sort of like: [{Hello, are you asking:} x "?" newline "If so, then:" y ] I have a bot-generator script that basically does that process, if you feed it a bunch of someone's quotes. I made a ben franklin bot among others. Might be fun to create a Carl-bot and unleash it on the list.. just mumbling aloud.. (-: -jeff
