Anonymous instant messaging

Why do random people contact me on instant messaging? I don't get it. I get hit on by women all of the time. I think most of them are via Yahoo. They just start chatting with me out of the blue. I then ask if they know me and they usually respond with, "I'd like to get to know you now". Oh, honey, your ass just got blocked. Please, turn off the computer and get a life.

Are these scams or really lonely and desperate people?

I'm starting to receive offline chat messages on Yahoo Messenger. "women" with lines like "remember me" or "was that you the other night...". Uh, No and more NO! Good luck with that.

Any rain in your forecast? I hope so!

Take care,

Cory

Oh, yeah, if they only knew they picked the wrong guy to hit on. :)

There is some rain in the forecast for tonight. The big outbreak of storms is moving this way, but not keeping my hopes too high. It could completely miss us, or it could put a dent in our drought.

G'night...

I think it's both column A and B. That's why you don't see me on AIM/Yahoo IM as much anymore. Sigh.

The short answer is "Yes." The longer answer is that they're probably bots (as coachbear said), trying to scam you for passwords, account information, or even just malware to add your machine to their botnet.

This is why I'm always "invisible" on Y!.

Um...these are bots. I think they're all run by a simple "If-Then-Next" program. They don't want you, they want your money...on their porn site. Because they think you're desperate.
