AI Chatbox Folks Deny Authorship Of SECU Board "DMW" Letter, Point Blame At Virtual Reality Representative A tersely worded message has been received from the AI Chatbot folks, disclaiming responsibility for the recent SECU Board "Dead Man Walking" letter to "All employees" and Advisory Boards. The message stated clearly that the content of the DMW letter did not meet AI benchmarks for re-fabrication, logical consistency, or verifiable message value. "This document contains prolific poppycock, is not the work of an intelligent robot, and is not up to "industry standards"!"

Not real sure how one apologizes to an AI robot. And, who knew a robot could get insulted, when inappropriately linked to lesser quality work? Maybe I should ask the bot to write itself a suitable letter of apology? Would that work? Still own a flashlight, use a rotary dial phone and listen to AM-radio, so not sure how to navigate this new technology. [...still stuck in 1983, y'know.]

The message did go on to explain that AI Chatterbox not only could create all sorts of documents, but could also analyze, decipher, and "reverse engineer" a document, tracking back to identify the most likely authorship - and had done so!. [Who knew that?!]

"Our research has identified - with a high degree of certainty - that the author is an individual who is an expert in the field of virtual reality ["the inordinate focus on technology to create an artificial illusion of the real world"]. We believe the author to be...


... Representative George Santos of New York or a similar practitioner virtually detached from truthfulness and reality."


... can you live-stream AM-radio over a rotary phone? Is that android or iOS? [BTW, what is a rotary phone?]



  1. You think this letter is surreal? Try working there. We are doing so many things backwards all while spending money without a care in the world.
    Employees are watching these changes and, let's be clear, they aren't afraid of change. They are calling out BAD DECISIONS, POOR LEADERSHIP, and MISERABLE IMPLEMENTATION. And, for that…for trying to protect SECU from disaster after disaster, they are treated terribly.
    I'll give them one thing. The new leadership does condescension decently well. Watch the last IS town hall from April. CIO, Culture Officer, and Security Officer get high marks in making employees miserable while sharing nothing that contains actual information. Oh, employees did get to ask some questions in the 10 minutes for Q&A after the 2 hours of "freedom counseling". And, just to underscore this point, without euphemism… Yes, they spent nearly 2 hours telling people to resign if they don't like the new way. And, you've seen the comments about how the Q&A went. Unintelligible ramblings.
    Is this who we are? SECU has always been a TRUSTED financial partner. That's all history.

    1. Please provide context on freedom counseling.

    2. That was the euphemism for saying leave if you don't like the way this company is doing things. The whole IS town hall meeting in April was dedicated to that (there's a recording of this mtg and all other town halls). It started with why would you do something you hate everyday? Choose happiness. If you're unhappy, leave. This was conveyed in a folksy, unprofessional manner by the culture officer. "Freedom counseling " is her term for it. You don't like it, LEAVE! DON'T DIG IN.
      CIO echoed it over and over. You know, he rambles.
      Security officer got up and chided an employee for asking a simple question. Went on and on about how his question was an example of the problem with folks not getting with the program. Tried to embarrass the questioner. Embarrased himself instead.

    3. Someone mentioned a No Confidence vote on the Board of Directors several weeks back in this blog? After reading this letter sent out to SECU employees, I must say we are way past a question of confidence in the Board's decision making o
