A funny thing just happened to me.
This is finnier if you’ve ever had a conversation with a chat robot. Those “botts” that send you a hello message and then try to have a three or four round conversation with you before sending you to a paid webcam site.
Today, on my web site, a visitor used the built in CHAT function to tell me they liked the site.
I responded with a “Thanks… I love fan mail” and they were suspicious. I know that feeling. Chatting with a chat system and you have to wonder if the person on the other end is real, or a bott.
This is the exchange that followed:
Are you really someone or are do you just have certain responses to typical things that people say?
frogstar42: heheh… I wonder things like that too, and it may be hard to prove I am a real human, sitting here.
[Visitor 20039556] …
frogstar42: except for this: http://www.frogstar.com/webcams/
[Visitor 20039556] Well okay then
frogstar42: Oh no! I just realized, the fake humans send you to webcam sites too. hehehe… Whoops.

frogstar42: No. Really. I am Jeff. The owner of this web site. I think it’s funny it’s hard to prove I am a human… and I sent you a webcam link.
frogstar42: Ask me a question
frogstar42: It’s funny, because that’s what I do to spam bots too.
[Visitor 20039556] Okay. If you were to have sex with anyone on the tip of the Empire State Building while wearing an orange jumpsuit, who would that be
frogstar42: I actually have an orange jumpsuit… but I don’t think I’d want to have sex at the tip. That’s a sharp point. I’d rather have sex on the top floor.
They never replied.
