I believe its Bot serial number. humans wouldnt come up with numbers to identify themselves unless they are some future cyborgs on modern movies.

I didn’t get the reference. But I at least got what it’s referencing from Max’s subsequent quote.

edit (actually took 5 seconds to think about it and read original comments).

Oh, NOW I get it.

Before you start making threats I should let you know I have an entire company of crack marines ready to leap into action at my command.

Would you believe a troop of boy scouts?

Faced so many suspect bots with this kind of names (number only) I think those are just placeholder while the acc are being tiered up. After enough ships obtained, the acc will be sold and new owners will change the name to whatever they like.

There is the possibility that they are generic accounts for bot farms as you said.

Dammit.

This always happens- I post something here before work, then lots of follow up stuff happens, and I'm not here to partake in the fun. :Smile_sad:

 

 The old 'Forums don't pay my mortgage' trick.

You wouldn't say you are CIA if you were really CIA.

Unless you know that people would think you aren't CIA if you said you were CIA which means you are trying to trick people based on people being sensible.

Unless you know that people aren't sensible and therefore saying you are CIA is actually a dead giveaway, in which case you aren't CIA because you would want to keep it secret.

Hmmf.

Probably KGB.
