In some regards I'd argue that one deserved an insightful mod. The comment that actually had one (at this time) didn't deserve it, and no "funny" comments at all. Sad. (#PresidentTweety contamination is bigly sad.)
Consider the Fermi Paradox. Obvious resolution is that they're out there, but not talking to us because we're still amusing enough to bet quatloos on. What are they betting on?
Whether we create our AI successors before we exterminate ourselves. Right now the odds are falling fast. (#PresidentTweety again.)
Yeah, I'm speculating, but natural evolution is a kind of random process and follows many paths. There is some convergence, but it's still interesting to watch the various paths. The AIs are NOT coming from random processes and blind watchmakers, but will probably converge on the laws of physics without much of interest to watch. When our AI descendants get to that point, they'll get (and be able to understand) the greetings from the others.
