The listed example concepts weren't technical at all, though - they were
basic, whimsical prattling.  If you're going to get technical, that'd be
nice, but I tend to agree that SNR is going to get worse if we start
discussing how a virtual world must involve "non-player characters doing
undefined stuff" or "quests" and similar.

On the other hand, discussing workable algorithms for simulating what said
NPCs are doing with other NPCs, and how to make said AI scale to the size of
an MMORPG - that would be useful and technical.
