Has no global contextual sensitivity, but lots of semantic linking..
Writes sentences that locally make sense, however barely make it to paragraphs before they lose the plot..
Takes a few keywords from an existing discussion and tried to mold them on to another subject area..
Uses highly unusual punctuation, however never appears to make spelling mistakes..
Doesnt Sleep..

I present to you Ireland, beta.
