    Well... they did tell it to learn from UrbanDictionary...

    That's like telling it to get facts from EncyclopediaDramatica[sp?] and social etiquette from 4chan.

    Then, it'll get in with the wrong crowd and before you know it, it'll start botting for Chinese gold farmers.

    Almost immediately, Watson began casually dropping profanity into its everyday speech, such as answering one researcher's query with the less-than-scientific term "bullshit."
    I'm not fussed about it using language - the answer I want to know is.. Was it wrong? :P
    Because, honestly, I'd accept that answer wholeheartedly if the query was 'Explain Politics.'
