Typing here or leaving recorded voice messages and replies?

If there was a system or a way we could leave messages to our forum peeps then that would have been great. Its nice to hear someone's voive rather than type away.  It also means that voice messages can interpret replies in a genuine manner so that we know if someone is kidding around or being serious about their comments and messages. 
Be moral, be ethical and live life to the maximum.

    Me personally if I want to communicate in voices, I go out into the real world - which is a neat thing to do at times.

    You may be right. Your voice is very calm and relaxing Priyah.

    Ironic a bot asking about why folks do not use their real pictures on their profiles has a catfishing pic on its account.
    WAAAGH!

    Forums are fine the way they are.  They've worked just fine since the days of the BBS, there's no need to add voice communication into this, that would be a terrible idea.

    You can voice chat with people on your Oculus Friends List through the Party feature in the Oculus Home app (or at least, actual people can).

    This is interesting - the bot is actually making a statement other "bots" have been making on other forums! The more I look at this poster, the more I think I am looking at a "logic Bot" - or someone typing others' information! Be interesting to see how the moderators handle this one.

    Is the OP a known bot or something?  What's all this talk of bots about?

    Either she's related to @Log_a_Frog (is that a Lillipad in her hair?) or yes, she's a bot that has a very similar pattern to at least 2 other bot accounts and possibly 1 other notorious perma-ban recipient.

    I was leaning towards one of the bot accounts at first, but when she posted on my Wall I got extra suspicious lol

    Just the stilted responses and sudden reappearance. No hard facts that this is a bot. But something is not quite right.

    Ahhhh, the interwebs, an interesting playground we have here.  A possible stalking bot is among us.  ;)

    I'm not sure if she's a bot (not sure what the purpose would be) or just a strange person. I'm pretty sure she's the same person/bot who was banned a couple years ago after spamming the forum with a bunch of weird posts about wanting to have Brendan Iribe's babies, some stuff about pregnancy and using the Rift to visit with the baby in the womb, and some other bizarre pseudo-spirituality-related drivel.

    Here's an example, and here's another. Here's one more.

    To hear your voice may prove you are not a dude. That's about all really.

    One thing I have noticed across many forums - contentious or perma-banned accounts (that have not been shuttered) have been springing back to life - I wonder if certain posters have sold or given away their accounts to be used by bots - or are doing the bidding of those running bot-nets as an attack against those forums that they think did them bad!?

    Ah another CEO, just like myself. I think it would indeed take up too much hard drive space to listen to Voicemails doncha think? Besides, they also contain waffle and I can not speed read voice waffle like I do text!

    Hmm, maybe this is not cleverusername afterall. Perhaps it is that other infamous bot then. Either that or cleverusername has been stellar in their cross-identity upkeep.
