Apparently not. This rumor got all sorts of popularity after hitting reddit and imgur the other day, until people with some actual knowledge in the area came out to correct it, with among other statements, this image:

But don't worry. Most people are happy to retain false knowledge, pass it along, and spread misinformation even once they know it's not true anymore. Just like the weather photos that circulate every time there is a major storm, that aren't actually of that storm, but people seem to believe they are. xD

Then your drones reject your commands as they are free-thinkers and can make their own decisions
