Sometimes the New Media Get it All Wrong

Yesterday, I opened my AOL Instant Messenger only to learn that I had two new "buddies" I have never met ... and actually don't ever want to meet. I think someone at AOL must have a screw loose. Maybe it's time to switch over to Microsoft.

The two new buddies are a ShoppingBuddy and a Moviefone bot, both automated programs that send preprogrammed responses to queries about shopping and movies. Frankly,Im not looking for a 'shopping buddy' to automatically add itself to my life and promote buying over their network. At least have the courtesy to ask me before sending new buddies into my life.
