No, you are confusing two entirely different things.  The Martellibot Mark 1
has a completely European flavour to it, and adds a cosmopolitan touch of
linguistics to its output, sprinkling foreign language references in.  It is
similar to the timbot in its overall erudition, but can be distinguished
from it by its tendency to indulge in flamewars (which, I believe, ot does
mostly to convince us it is human).
