Strangeness.

ConsumerSalmon: Do you think I'm cute?
Scott: Sure.
ConsumerSalmon: sure what?
Scott: Sure, why not?
ConsumerSalmon: do i know you?
Scott: You messaged me first.
ConsumerSalmon: whoever the asshole was who sent me a robot thing, you suck
Scott: Robot thing?
ConsumerSalmon: robot thing.
Scott: Oh, robot thing.
Scott: Right.
ConsumerSalmon: yes, robot thing.
Scott: More detail, please, as what you're talking about still eludes me.
ConsumerSalmon: haha
ConsumerSalmon: i rest my case
Scott: Was it tired?
ConsumerSalmon: man, this is a shitty robot
ConsumerSalmon: was what tired?
Scott: Your case.
ConsumerSalmon: um yes
ConsumerSalmon: who the fuck is this
ConsumerSalmon: because if you're not a robot thing, then you are just random
Scott: So, if I google for "robot thing", will I find what it was you were sent?
ConsumerSalmon: um probably
Scott: Am I the only one that remembers that you messaged me first?
Scott: I have no idea who you are.
ConsumerSalmon: what the fuck are you talkign about?
ConsumerSalmon: i have no idea who you are either
Scott: Then why did you message me?
ConsumerSalmon: i didn't
Scott:             ConsumerSalmon: Do you think I'm cute?
                       Scott: Sure.
Scott: You did.
ConsumerSalmon: i got a random message that said "sure" from you and that's how it started
ConsumerSalmon: scott?
ConsumerSalmon: whatthefuck
ConsumerSalmon:             ConsumerSalmon: Sure.
                                    BadArtGood: sure what?
ConsumerSalmon: that is what i got
Scott: I got a random message from you asking if I thought you were cute.
ConsumerSalmon: i didn't send it to you
Scott: And it's telling me your username is ConsumerSalmon.
ConsumerSalmon: so either you are a robot thing, or on crack
ConsumerSalmon: that's what it's saying YOURS is
Scott: I see.
ConsumerSalmon: so someone is probably being hacked here
Scott: I'd guess you.
ConsumerSalmon: well fuck my life
Scott: Sounds like mine.
ConsumerSalmon: i guess i will sign off then and try to fix it
Scott: Good luck.

There is a robot thing...
It'll grab random people who post on LJ and message them.

It leads to a situation like this.

Someone explained it to me before, it has a name and stuff.

But "ConsumerSalmon" is a bot. You message it and it relays it somewhere else.. they message back and it relays to you.

Blah :P

Edit: A link for you

I've gotten the bot "Salmon" before. It's always "somethingSalmon" and then starts talking to you. Had to block two so far.

Hey bro, it's me, BadArtGood that it got you with.
Yeah that was some weird shit, glad you figured it out though :]

Haha, I got sent the link to this by the bot. I'd been messaged by it twice before so I know the routine, but people had never managed to control it's greeting message first... unless, I guess, I'm the second person in its hook-up. That would make sense.

Anyway, very kind of you to explain to a potentially poor, confused soul. :D

Yeah, it messaged me first, and I have that whole paragraph saved so I can just cut and paste it to whoever is on the other end. :)

Do you just block it after sending, or just sort of... ignore it after that?

I don't bother blocking it, first, because I might get some laughs out of it (the bot maker sent me an IM saying "what a spoilsport" or something like that once), and second, because I'm lazy. Even then, I've never gotten another message from the same Salmon name, so blocking it would be a waste of time.

Ha! I'm really curious about it's creator now. XD How many times has it gotten you now?

And I just asked because I responded to the paragraph, but didn't get anything back. I guess you could have just signed off or something, though. I wonder what it does with that?

Just the once. I don't often get IMs out of the blue, and 99% of them are from bots like this.

It sent another IM after the paragraph, that was probably you. I figured it was another 'opening' line and didn't respond to it.

Yeah, I asked if anyone was alive over there or something like that. Maybe I should pick something more human sounding. XD And I mean -- how many times has the bot gotten you? (that's a bit unclear to ask about 'it' right after mentioning the creator, sorry about that)

No no, it's only fooled me the once, when I made this post. *points up* After I was clued in by the comments, I haven't been gotten yet.

Just happened to me too, and I googled the name, and found this. ;x) Weird.

Congratulations!

I've been getting 1-4 different Salmon bots sending me messages every day. I got bored of sending the "this thing I'm talking to you through is a bot" boilerplate every time and just close the windows now.
