Yes, but do we know for sure if Xan is a replicant/bot?

I would protest that I'm not, but of course that's just what a bot would say.

One of my favorite members. Always cheerful. O0

Do bot creators sometimes boost credibility buy checking in once in a while and posting a human answer under the bot's handle?

I'm sure Buddtholomew was human. Bottholomew, maybe not.

Maybe it's like the knights & knaves logic game in which knights always tell the truth and knaves always lie. We have to ask Xan, "If we asked this suspected bot if he were a bot, how would he answer?"- oh, wait, you just supplied the answer, and from it I can tell you're human!

he was a sly one for sure, I am usually a lot faster at spotting them..
and yes they do sometimes work human to bot members... the human passes the captcha posts a few on topics... the bot takes over with semi on topic posts, then the bot tries to come back and edit/add spam links to old posts..
