What are the odds...

... that the latest groups/batches of "new members" arriving here at a2k are university/academic attempts at creating an AI (artificial intelligence) and where the creators are unleashing their creations on a2k to for real life/unfettered Turing testing?

Some context regarding the Turing test for those not in the know:
The Turing test is a test of a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour. In Turing's original illustrative example, a human judge engages in a natural language conversation with a human and a machine designed to generate performance indistinguishable from that of a human being.


Of course, the alternative is more likely. Spambots. Evil or Very Mad These new members rarely post after their introductory threads and/or initial burst of posting activity that goes no more then a week or so. Posts which often don't really seem to answer or directly relate to the post their replying to. Or if they do actually answer the question at hand, answer with posts that are elementary at best.

Would internet forums be a viable method for performing Turing Tests? Where the members of said forum are unknowing participants?
