Conversations with Spambots, Part 1

(Last week, this was my first post ever on my newish Tumblr account.  Then I realized Tumblr doesn’t do what I want it to, so I will probably never use it again.  Therefore, I am reposting here.)

A few times in the last few months, I’ve received random unsolicited IMs from spam accounts trying to get me to go to their stripper webcam sites or something.  Last week I was contacted by a repeat offender from an account I recognized.  So after engaging for a bit, I looked up the old conversation and pasted it, along with the new one, below.

  1. Haha! Did you see what happens when two Cleverbots chat which one another? Pretty funny:

    You should write a post about Norway! PLEASE!

    • Best comment:

      … In three minutes they already demonstrated self awareness, learned how to lie, argued about the existence of god and wanted physical bodies… WE’RE SCREWED.

      As for Norway, I’ll be writing something about that in the future. Really!

  2. I don’t know the capital of Delaware… I guess I’m a bot.

  3. I’d say that it’s because you’re not Murrcan, but then again, who remembers that stuff anyway? You’d at least think to Google it if you had to prove yourself human…wouldn’t you? Or this: “I am not a Canadian. I am a unicorn!”

  4. Yeah, Deb, what’s the capital of Norway? :p
