Talking Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine™ installed!

Happy April Fool's day!

My dear members, I've got some exciting news for you today!
With special written permission from James and John from Jelsoft, Li Hang and Yamanishi Kenji (the original developers of this very gentle system) and the rest of the development for vBulletin 3, we installed today the long awaited Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine?, a system many of you believe didn't exist.

Well ladies and gentlemen, it is here and it's here to stay! For the time being, until you all get the hang of things, we have removed the option to turn off the Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine?, but as things roll it will be put back in.

For those of you who were living on Mars for the last couple of months, here is a brief description of what the Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine? can or cannot do:
As of today, the Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine? will be able to post instead of you, with what the system believes your comment would be. Precise processing of past posts gives the Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine? data to work with. Rough spread sheet of expected human behaviour, combined with the above yields a very accurate response. If one does not have enough posts for data, the Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine? will not reply for that user. Let's assume you have just registered, the system will have no data about your personality and past actions, and posting based on little data would be irresponsible. For what it's worth, in the future you won't be forced to use the Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine?, if you don't like it. Of course, the Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine? requires quite a large amount of memory and strains the server, which is why vBulletin.org has been moved to a new server rack last week. Oh, if one fails to reach the site for whatever reason, please stay calmed and try again at a later time. Low budget forced us to buy a second hand server.

That's all for now, I dearly hope you will find the Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine? splendid and helpful, which will make your posting experience more exciting than ever! Just as a final note, the system will not be able to reply to all threads at the beginning, as it's still learning the database and gathering data for each and every one of you (this is the first time the system is faced with such a large base of users, 10,000).
The system was tested thoroughly for more than 3 weeks in closed area, and it's been announced 100% bug-less by the best of Web developers (a press release will issued during the next week).

Oh and before you start asking: The Intuitive Auto-Reply Engine? will only be released with vBulletin 3 as it's dependent of it (we have installed certain hidden features of vB3 here to support it).

Forgive me for not understanding why this is in any way useful or helpful. I don't want a computer posting for me.

This was mentioned on vb.com as a key and integral feature of vb3. Nice of them to release it early. ^_^

Look at the calendar folks.

This is a great hack. Good job, FireFly.

I really wonder what is so funny about this? From what I've read this is a very delicate system developed exclusively fpr vBulletin, and as Firefly says given with special permission to vB.org, and you laugh? This is big fellas, realise that.
