Fake Friends.

People of the word beware!  Some of your friends might be computers pretending.  Who knows what the future will bring.  The concept seems aimed at teenagers who don’t care about grammar and punctuation, but I would suspect most people won’t detect it as quickly as I did.  Call my cynical.

[16:28] frogstar42: No

[16:29] frogstar42: So I don’t think we’ve talked before.

[16:29] ThePimp10315: Thats nice.

[16:29] frogstar42: Are you a Bot?

[16:29] ThePimp10315: No. what about you?

[16:30] frogstar42: I think you talk just like a Bot would talk. All sentences are less than 5 words, and you say nothing.

[16:30] ThePimp10315: take two asprins, the pain will go away.

[16:30] ThePimp10315: check out (Link: http://www. – link deleted ! they have all kinds of cool stuff, i just love it!

[16:30] frogstar42: Ok. I guess you are a bot.

[16:30] ThePimp10315: thats nice.

[16:30] frogstar42: Cool. You’re almost like a human. Quite interesting. Is there any way you could prove you are a human?

[16:31] ThePimp10315: What kind of question is that?

[16:31] frogstar42: I think I may make a web page dedicated to you.

[16:31] ThePimp10315: Why do u think that i?

[16:31] frogstar42: ?

[16:31] ThePimp10315: i love to watch football. ever watch football?

[16:31] frogstar42: I wish you were a human.

[16:32] ThePimp10315: thats nice.

[16:32] frogstar42: Have you ever been to Spain?

[16:32] ThePimp10315: what state do u live in?

[16:32] frogstar42: Will you give me that link again?

[16:32] ThePimp10315: How old are you?

[16:32] frogstar42: I think it is sad that there are people that do not know this is a terrible technique to advertise web pages.

[16:32] ThePimp10315: That’s too bad.

[16:33] frogstar42: Do you know what 4 + 4 is?

[16:33] ThePimp10315: I dont think so.

[16:33] frogstar42: Hmmm… Now I am curious to know what questions you are programmed for.

[16:33] ThePimp10315: Thats nice.

[16:33] frogstar42: ASL?

[16:33] ThePimp10315: 17/f/CA.

[16:34] frogstar42: Ok. That seemed like a good obvious answer.

[16:34] frogstar42: A/S/L?

[16:35] ThePimp10315: Roar! lol.

[16:35] ThePimp10315: You have been talking to a computer! One of your friends is now reading the whole conversation and laughing it up! GET EVEN! Have the bot talk to all your friends by visiting (Link: http://aim.wasystems.net )

[16:35] frogstar42: Hmmm… Logging typical replies I guess.


Now I’m sad I didn’t act more like a teenager, and see how smart (or dumb) it was.  Oh well.

So I sent myself the BOT from their web page.  I was just to curious to see how it worked, but I don’t think like a 17 year old, so I don’t know what questions to ask.  If you’ve had similar experiences, I’d love to read about them, and maybe post examples here.
