[20:09] Capt Jinx104: greetings
[20:13] Capt Jinx104: hehehe, I think we had this coversation before
[20:13] DoomBringingCoho: I'm not captain jinx
[20:14] Capt Jinx104: I would hope not, that would mean I'm having a hacker attempt on my account
[20:15] DoomBringingCoho: This is ***SPARKLES***...do I actually know you?
[20:15] Capt Jinx104: not really, we spoke around four months ago when I was taking leave and we had the same little coversation about who im'ed who
[20:15] Capt Jinx104: this is perry btw
[20:16] DoomBringingCoho: Well hello Perry.
[20:16] Capt Jinx104: once again, well met
[20:17] Capt Jinx104: how goes your turkey day?
[20:17] DoomBringingCoho: Very well thank you. How about yours?
[20:18] Capt Jinx104: I've been waiting for 18000 files to be processed by my computer so I can go on a hike but I've managed to call friends and family today so I'm good
[20:18] DoomBringingCoho: That's a lot of files.
[20:19] DoomBringingCoho: Contacting friends and family is always good.
[20:19] DoomBringingCoho: We had a great meal with very little drama.
[20:21] Capt Jinx104: very good, I think I know where you picked up my sn, I see you do LJ as well
[20:22] DoomBringingCoho: That's true. and facebook
[20:22] Capt Jinx104: hahahah, coho bot....I see now
[20:23] Capt Jinx104: automated
[20:23] DoomBringingCoho: HOw did I do that???
[20:24] Capt Jinx104: I believe it is from a group you joined called themissinghat
[20:24] DoomBringingCoho: Oh... interesting.
[20:25] Capt Jinx104: How did they get my screen name?
A: These bots search the recently updated pages of web sites (LiveJournal, Xanga, deviantArt, Twitter, etc.) to find screen names and connect random people.

[20:26] DoomBringingCoho: That certainly explains it. Well, it was nice chatting anyway. Time to run spybot.
[20:26] Capt Jinx104: lol, take care
[20:26] DoomBringingCoho: You too.

***Name's changed to protect the poor person that was forced into a conversation with me ;)

...BTW themissinghat is just a community that people use to post when they've been coho'ed as well, think its time to do a bit of spybot search and destroy myself just in case...

Hehehe, I've been hit before by the same bot but I didn't have time to figure out what it was before my flight left. It is interesting to say the least.
