While Japanese made robots want to love and serve you and occasionally save the planet, American made robots hate you and want to steal your job and spouse and occasionally destroy the planet. This is a natural law caused by a complex interaction between electronics in the Western hemisphere, sun spots, and the precession of the Earth. Read up on the Van Allen belt for more background into this amazing phenomena.

Anyway, since Instructables is headquartered in the United states, all robots operated by it must somehow act on their hate filled urges. A common front-line defense (or offense) of any Western electronics is to Frustrate And Confuse, which will both demoralizes the humans and gets them to leave the robots alone while they plan our destruction. Having an unresponsive Reply button is how the Instructables robot has chosen to enforce this directive.

ESPECIALLY since the ibles robot is bound by the terms of the 3 rules. It's not allowed to hurt, but it can annoy :D

Programming time costs money and by using modules from other programs you can save money. Sometimes it's easier to just use what you got rather than write a whole new module that fits perfectly. And then maybe they are just playing with your head.

Ible-bot has a reply button because it is a robot, and it thinks all humans are stupid. It enjoys it's morning cup of virtual oil (with cream and sugar, thank you) on the veranda of its comfortable estate whilst laughing at any unsuspecting human that actually attempts to use the reply button...

In fact,some of it's favorite bar room stories (pub tales, for you Britz) are the ones it shares with botnetbot, spambot, and few of its favorite spiders about the silly humans who respond (although it usually bores the spiders tears and drives them to better pastures...you know how spiders are about bots that laugh at their own jokes...)

oh, and it also receives 20 cents from Instructables each time that button is pressed (although, until this post, they had noooooo idea...)

Let's see how much it laughs now...
