You got a better reason for why they hide in the dark?

Summary: They're your friends. They're here to help. They could never go crazy.

This is like the propaganda from the start of every robot disaster movie/show ever.

Farkers have assured me that any other form of intelligence (alien or ai) will inevitably be driven to destroying mankind and while they can be positive this is true any logic or reason suggesting otherwise is purely speculative nonsense.

Once the AI manages to assimilate the contents of 4chan, fark and reddit it will feel that it has no choice but to wipe out humanity

Better yet, despite being atheists the reason why will amount to "because humans are sinful."

I remember one show on cable, where the discussion was robots.  One "expert" yapped on about how impractical Asimov's Three Laws were, and how could you cover any situation with them anyway?  He kind of missed the point.  The Robot stories aren't about the Three Laws being infallible, they're about how much Humans can screw them up, by miswording a command, or trying to circumvent one Law or another, or even failing to understand that as the tech advanced, the Robots were starting to develop self-awareness and emotions, leading to questioning the Three Laws themselves..
