The Intelligence community is always denying the existence of intelligence, even artificial. :lol:

But you're right. I was grouping things like "forumbots" in my notion of AI. Computer scientists make finer distinctions, such that most bots are not considered "AI". Accuracy in communication is highly appreciated on a language learning board like this.

zenmonkey wrote:It likely is not a DDOS but rather forumbots in volume. These try to sign on and post spam. And likely what is happening is that this loads up the cookie directory on the server and regular requests then time out. It’s a reported issue with this version of the software.

So, spambots, gatherbots, and greedybots are not AI, right?

I also appreciate your use of the term "pretending to be humans". AIs don't have to pretend to be human. They could manage a resource, such as computrons (memory, processing, bandwidth, and disk) or money and do it in a way that doesn't necessarily mimic human behavior.

My active imagination presumes some software issues can be addressed by turning a few knobs (adjusting parameters that are okay for child and adolescent applications and later have to be tweaked when the application hits puberty or adulthood).

Sometimes you just need a bigger refrigerator or another car or more patience as the kids grow up.

"504 Gateway Time-out"

I don't know whether this is a new symptom and reading the full thread would be a little difficult at the moment...

I think I have seen it before, but I'm not sure. However I'm sure that there has been an unusually long time-out until a moment ago.

Possibly another server crash like rdearman had to address recently? Since the return of the errors it now defaults to them immediately when first requesting access to the site. It's very frustrating.
