Suddenly, it all makes sense. REcaptcha, REtrovirus? DEAR LORD!

The votey really makes the whole joke.

This is the first time an SMBC joke hasn't made sense to me.

Instead of using a vast array of processors that can only be supplied by human manufacturers, these sentient machines decided to take the distributed computing route and have humans handle their computation so as to stay low-key so no computer scientist figures it out.

Do you mean the votey, dear visitor from xkcd-land?

Why is it called the votey out of interest? I'm a fairly casual browser here so I am unaware of your inside jokes.

Once upon a timne, in the ancient old days of lore, those little extra bits could only be seen if you voted for SMBC on TopWebComics, as an incentive. Nowadays there's no voting, but Zach still had them in his archives and put them up for people to see, and keeps producing new ones too.

The annoying thing is, I thought this username had already been taken, so I decided to stick with 'Felstaff'.

You can use usernames that are already in use if you're unregistered can't you?
Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon
about to eat your face.

Wow, a guy who actually went to the effort of registering to make inane comments when he could have done it as a guest. The world never ceases to amaze.
