For the record, could you offer some examples of why this is the case?
It would help everyone to better understand your judgement on this issue
as moderator.

I thought it was at least a little thought provoking. It helps very
much if you can put yourself fully in the other's position. Thinking
about what you would say to an SAI to get it to let you out could be an
interesting thought exercise. Espicially since, by some accounts, we
may actually be in a box right now; possibly designed to evaluate us as
individuals. Such a scenario has been suggested as an emergency measure
in the event Nanotech becomes widely available.
