    Did they really have to use Donald Trump? I hate that voice just as much as I hate that face. I'd rather hear the likes of Brando, Monroe, Bacall, Connery or Walken extolling the virtues of Lyrebird.

    They suggest ethical use and and yet they gave it a name that's a homophone of Liar-bird. Hmmm.

    It's just named after the bird which inspired the software - they almost had no choice but, to give it credit

    They also used Obama and Clinton, who aren't exactly known for their honesty. They are, after all, politicians..

    Great defence of Trumpo there, TP. Yet Trump is sulphuric acid to Obama's lemon juice. The are, after all, bad for your teeth when you drink them. ;-)

    Both are about as dishonest as each other. Trump is just significantly more incompetent. This is a good thing.

    Point 1: Failure to follow correct radio protocols = Fake.
    Point 2: Failure to use correct radio prowords = Fake.
    Point 3: "Hello General, this is Soldier X. Authenticate Charley. Over" - Incorrect response = Fake.

    Plus a few other cool tricks to avoid getting your comms hijacked.

    That's a dishonest assessment, TP. If you don't know that then there's no use knocking on your skull and waiting for a smart guy to come out and say hello. ;-)

    Trump is just significantly more incompetent. This is a good thing.
    But there's no disputing Trump's incompetence.

    You're accusing me of being dishonest for sharing my opinion that you think is stupid? But if it's my opinion, then how is it dishonest? You can say you disagree with it, but accusing me of dishonesty is nonsensical. But I wouldn't expect logical discourse on politics from anyone who has picked a side.
