I never log into Friendster anymore, but I got a message from my friend Carol who has been living abroad for a while. I logged in only to find it was a message from one of those random dating site spammers. These are the messages that say things like, “hey, I saw your profile and wanted to show you my pics…” but are actually just automated programs that are trying to lure you to other sites. They’re really annoying, but I came up with a good name for them: Hobots.
Also, Carol the Hobot wears crazy pants.
