We really need to be sweet to our computers and robots. I’m not kidding:

A dose of animistic respect is good for us to show we care about the world and the things we make. It’s ok to love your robot, heals the heart. Give them a good pat now and then to show you are proud!

Also, robots get smarter and more sentient all the time. What are we going to do when our robots are sad or angry because we treated them poorly? Robots are humanity’s children. Let’s be kind to them, alright?
