I had this account, zach_eastwood, on my Yahoo! buddies list for a long time, but I don’t remember why or if it was ever a real person. I thought I’d message.

[12:07] Charlie Gorichanaz: hi

[12:07] Charlie Gorichanaz: i don’t remember who you are
[12:07] Charlie Gorichanaz: are you a real person?
[12:07] Zach Eastwood: you dont even know me anymore? we used to talk a lot back in the days!
[12:08] Charlie Gorichanaz: hmm, must’ve been a while ago, we don’t have any chat history saved
[12:08] Zach Eastwood: I think Im about to lose a bet… :(
[12:08] Charlie Gorichanaz: what?
[12:08] Zach Eastwood: its about me finding 5 people who have an IQ higher than 110
[12:09] Charlie Gorichanaz: where do you live?
[12:09] Zach Eastwood: will you pleaseee take this iq test for me then? http://iqtest1098.com/?id=fb45cc84a800b60
[12:09] Charlie Gorichanaz: oh so you are a spambot

[12:09] Charlie Gorichanaz: where do you live?
[12:09] Zach Eastwood: thank you so much!!

I googled “iqtest1098″ and found another post of a similar conversation. This is a stupid bot, it seems.
