How so? If not even a transhuman AI can convince you over the course of
months, why isn't it realistic to ask someone to talk to a mere human
for a couple of hours? Do you think you won't be able to hold out if
you have to actually talk with the person instead of turning away from
the screen? If so, your AI-proof sales resistance is a lot weaker than
you are making it out to be.

Or do you mean that the AI should receive more than 2 hours?
