Your various outpourings appear so rambling and ill-conceived that
silence is often the only polite response.

If you are flattered to be compared to an AI you must come from the same
race as Mr. Spock in Star Trek.

You aren't entitled to require discussion of your ideas and proposals.
The usual way of obtaining responses is to engage in a dialog,
responding intelligently and directly to any criticism or discussion.
But it's often difficult to discern what point you are trying to make.

This may be a linguistic issue, or it may be because you are running
some bizarre experiment. The jury appears to still be out on that question.
