Like perfect spelling? Or bad grammar?

Humor welcome.

@RedDeerGuy1, could you please restate the question? I can’t tell whether you’re talking about here on Fluther or elsewhere, and if you’re thinking of texts or email or some other medium. And I don’t quite know what you mean by tricks. I assume you’re referring to spambots, but maybe not—?

@Jeruba I mean chat bots.

I have captions for television shows where the text uses a homophone of the correct word – like using “there” instead of “their”.

It becomes more and more difficult to discover chat bots as they are continually evolving and the more chatbots resemble human beings the less we care whether they are automated or not. There was an interesting article in the Guardian a few years ago on this subject.

Ask it something complex or unexpected that requires thinking or actual understanding and doesn’t have a canned answer.

Things have gotten even better/worse in the 5 years since it was written.
