Conversation with a spam bot

, posted: 23-May-2012 12:46

"Alexis" appeared uninvited in my Google Talk or Chat or whatever it's called now. I suspected it was a spambot so decided to see if it was any good. It wasn't.

Seriously, do people fall for this kind of stuff?

 

Alexis

hiya!

me

Hello

Are you a spam bot?

Alexis

hey thanks for the add hun, there's hardly anyone on here anymore to chat with ya know?

me

You probably are a spam bot

Alexis

i miss how it used to be when there was more people on here but oh well, so what's up with u?

me

I am chatting with a spam bot

Which seems meaningless

Alexis

ah, so my asshole ex-bf cheated on me so i just been going out and meeting new people having a blast, i forgot how fun it was to be single again lol

me

So I might just block you

Do you mind?

Alexis

well i was actually about to get on my cam did u wanna cum join me... i found an awesome site that's like a facebook for adults but with cams ;)

me

Ugh, no thanks

Can't think of anything more horrible

Alexis

i started using it so i couldn't be recorded but it's really fun and i love "putting on a show" if u know what i mean ;) wanna cum see?

me

No, I really don't.

Alexis

yay!! all u gotta do is sign-up but like i said it's 100% free and only takes a sec k?

me

I don't think you parse what I write, do you?

Alexis

kk just go to [link removed] that's my profile page. at the top there u should see a gold button that says "Join Free" see it?

me

No way am I clicking that link.

Alexis

k just click that and then all u do is just make ure account and u can start typing to me... i have a private room for us so it's just one on one :)

me

Now where's that block button...

Alexis

yeah u do need a card of sum kind but it doesnt get charged and actually if u look you'll see it even says it right there. it's just so they don't get in trouble for any kiddiez

me

You're the crappiest spam bot ever, do you know that?

 

Alexis is typing.

 

You have blocked Alexis. You can no longer see each other online or chat together. Unblock Alexis

Alexis is offline. Messages you send will be delivered when Alexis comes online.

Continue this chat over SMS.

 

Why does Google think I'd want to continue the chat over SMS after I blocked the spambot? And "Alexis" isn't offline either. Silly Google.
