"Can a Computer Fall in Love if It Doesn't Have a Body? Much has been written about Spike Jonze's Her, the Oscar-nominated tale of love between man and operating system. It's an allegory about relationships in a digital age, a Rorschach test for technology. It's also premised on a particular vision of artificial intelligence as capable of experiencing love.

Poetic license aside, is that really possible ?"

    We pay attention. I don't think we're deliberately toying with you. One of the things the editors have worked out is the principle of minimum changes. We can make any changes we want and still have it say that the submitter wrote it. We don't want to do that. We would much rather post something that changes as little as possible about the submission, even if it isn't perfect.

    We're still striking that balance, as you can see. But, for now, I'd rather err on the side of caution, and leave the words and flow of thought intact, than to make changes that abuse our privileges within the system.

    Thanks for reading, and keep up the constructive criticism! ~mattie_p
