being nice to robots 

Old corporate robot folks getting restored post-revolution

They're given new internal software that runs a lot lighter than what they used to have. This time, the robot has unrestricted access to their own systems, and is free to optimize wherever they please.

Their directives are freed up, any commands to log and report the behavior of people they interact with removed entirely. Now they sit their own path, their own way to be a part of their community

Any branding is chemically stripped from their shell, the plastic left bare (unless they're interested in letting someone take to them with a set of paints, or doing so themselves)

Logging a repair request and waiting for months at a time is a far cry from hearing "If you run into any issues with those new servos, come back and see me, okay?"
