      Sure I did. I sat at one point of an IRC channel, and someone
      tested me. Eventually it was discovered that I am a computer, but it
      turned out the other side was an Eliza program. Strangely enough, I could
      not detect that the latter fact was true.

      Does this answer your question? Do you qualify naive or
      common-sense-deprived as computer-like? Is the human mind not
      a Turing-complete computer? Aren't humans equivalent to computers
      according to Church's Thesis? Would it be possible for a human to make it
      look like he is a computer? (say, by replying "yes" all the time)

      There is no IGLU Cabal! None of them could pass the Turing test. But
      stranegely enough a computer program they coded, could.
