Chatbot Conversation

I was contacted on Yahoo Messenger today by a chatbot named Alexandra Buford. She greeted me in a foreign language, so I thought it polite to reply likewise.

Alexandra: yhneb martinrund

Martin: yhneb

Alexandra: Hi martinrund. it’s Alexandra.

Martin: yhneb

Alexandra: u dont know me Kelly — gave me your info, 🙂

Martin: yhneb

Alexandra: I just moved here from outta town cuz my boyfriend just dumped me (loser!)

Martin: yhneb

Alexandra: I’m lookin to have some fun this weekend, wanna join me? ;);)

Martin: yhneb

Alexandra: I have a new profile up tell me what u think

Martin: YHNEB

Alexandra: So… U think ur up for some fun with me 😉


Alexandra: I’ve got my web cam up too if u wanna get a lil preview ;)!!

Martin: Y. H. N. E. B.

After this last message of mine, Alexandra ran out of pre-programmed lines to spout. Thus ended our brief relationship. I miss the way she used to say “yhneb” to me.

    Can’t we get 2 of those bots to chat to each other? Now THAT would be fun.

    I’ve always found eloquence one of your most attractive traits, darling.

    Honestly it’s worth a complaint just so they don’t get paid.

    You are SO lucky. Most of my spam contacts also offer to share millions (of ponds) with me, if I will only send them a few thousands ahead, as a sort of deposit of good faith, along with minor details, such as my name, address, phone number, age, sex, bank account number, credit card number, shoe size, etc. Plus I’ve often won the lotry. Haven’t you?

    Hello Dear! The best spam message I’ve ever received was one where they offered to enlarge my bust.
