  I hope that as soon as an AI realized it was running on untrusted resources,
it would commit suicide. Or at least vacate those resources and label
everything resulting from them (including its current state) as "untrusted,
possibly malicious". Just look at some of the people who post to this list (me
for instance...) and ask yourself if you would trust an AI distributed over
their home computer.
