How do you watch Cricket world cup online?

Post by Marlb10 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 6:07 am

Hi.. my channel list sucks and I can't seem to find one decent channel that is broadcasting ICC cricket world cup. I searched a few options online but the streams available are illegal and are down after every 10-20 mins. I tried watch cricket world cup but its suggesting me to get a vpn and then watch it on sony liv or sony ten series.

Is the only option available for me?

Marlb10, could you convince me that you're not a subtle and sophisticated spambot? No offense (if you're not a bot), but your posts all have a very "with it but not with it" quality that have a sort of Eliza-esque feel. And you post things that are way off topic including links to quasi-illegitimate things, also spambot-like.

Could you respond to these questions please in order:
* What's your favorite brand of cigarette?
* Who is a team you like in the Cricket World Cup?
* What's a fun city to visit and why?
* Do you invest in Bitcoin, and how do you feel about it?

We know what it should be, but let's see. I think he's a bot.

He ostensibly posted a time-sensitive question more than 24 hours ago, but hasn't been back since. At the end of the day I'll conclude he's a bot.

Xan,
Your list of 5 questions reminds me of the scene in the movie Blade Runner in which Deckard uses the Voight-Kampf test to determine whether or not a subject is human or android. Are 5 questions enough to identify a spambot? Please let us know how the interrogation works out!

Hahaa, yes! It really is like the replicant test.I don’t remember if that angry guy at the beginning (Leon?) knew whether or not he was a replicant. Maybe Marlb10 doesn’t know either. O0

Leon knew he was a replicant, which was why he blew away the detective/blade runner in the spectacular opening scene of the movie. Rachel, the hot number that Tyrell has Deckard administer the Voigt-Kampf test, does not know she is not human.

Ah, sounds familiar. And I guess the jury is still out on Deckard...

Marlb10 has been banned. Unlike most such bot bans, I left its posts on the forum. It actually sparked some interesting conversation on a number of occasions, including this one! It's a testament to the posters here that we can turn spam gibberish into something useful.

It started the weight loss thread a while back that went on for a while. And it would randomly reply to various other threads with kinda-sorta on-topic-ish posts that said things without saying much. Very sophisticated. Had us all fooled for a long time.

Update: I'm removing/disabling links that it posted. Looks like only 3, but all seemed to be trying to game search results for "Top VPN" or similar.

Hah, thanks. We should have known after this strange response to you:

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..
