Fun With Spambots
Spambots exist to teach people a lesson - never give your credit card numbers to websites proffered by nubile girls with webcams and far too much free time on their hands. These bots usually follow a script of "Hi, how are you? Oh, that's nice. I'm bored and fresh out of the shower. I'm going to go on my webcam and expose myself on the internet (because that's what us twentysomethings do). Here's the site!"
Recently, one messaged me on AIM (yes, I still use it), so I decided to have a little fun with it. The conversation is after the break.
