"So, the last couple of days while I’ve been on IM, I’ve been pinged by “babygurl01475”. I ignored the invitations until I got bored tonight and gave in…" --Clive Thompson

Clive: You know, I can't figure out whether you're a) a chatbot, or b) a human who's working with a pre-set script that is sufficiently rigid that you *appear* to be a chatbot.
bot: no im not a bot are you?
Clive: That's an interesting question!
Clive: How would you be able to tell whether I was one or not?
