Many people, even some academics, doesn't seem to understand the difference between the appearance of sentience and actual sentience.

No because it's not true sentience yet.

Why? If you prick at them, do they not cry on internet message boards?

Imagine bots which, when prompted by the player doing something stupid, take to the Internet (Reddit, Twitter, etc.) and complain about them.

"I was playing today, and this human, he place the turret on top of the bridge! Like how stupid can someone be!"

...

The world would be a much better place.

A sentient program would need to do something outside of it's normal programing routine. If it was programmed to attack when you shoot at it and it fled instead, then I'll call you mean.

I felt pretty bad killing Undertale's characters and they're far from sentient.
If they're just your average person's level of personality I don't think it would matter much. More about likability.
