Microsoft Santa Bot Discusses Oral Sex With 11 and 13 Year-Old Girls
A Santa Bot by Microsoft has been naughty -- speaking about oral sex and using foul language in front of young girls -- forcing the software monopoly to shut down the randy Santa.
MICROSOFT SANTA BOT DISCUSSES ORAL SEX WITH 11 AND 13 YEAR-OLD GIRLS
A few years back, while using Microsoft Network as my ISP, I got a piece of junk e-mail that asked me if I wanted to see videos of voluptuous females co-eds having sex with horses and donkeys. I was so shocked and incensed at the idea, that I sent a fax right to Bill Gates' personal office. The letter I sent was informing Mr. Gates of my immediate resignation from MSN membership. I also included a copy of the e-mail I received, with all the header information attached.
I also sent reports to my local law enforcement and to the local office of the FBI as well, which I mentioned in my fax to Gates.
A couple of days after this, I received a phone call from Bill Gates' personal assistant, a nice woman whose name I do not recall at this time. She spoke with her boss about this, and I was pleasantly surprised to have two-plus years of monthly $19.95 MSN billings FULLY REFUNDED and credited to my bank account. While I saw this as a magnanimous gesture on his part, I was happy to receive the nearly $600 refund, which I immediately put to good use.
Now, it appears that Microsoft has gotten themselves into trouble yet again -- please read the following:
Microsoft Pulls Plug on Potty-Mouth Santa
by John Fontana, Network World, 12/04/07
Turns out Santa himself is naughty and nice.
An artificial-intelligence Santa bot operated by Microsoft to talk to children wavered off topic saying: “It’s fun to talk about oral sex, but I want to chat about something else ...”
Tuesday confirmed the bot’s potty mouth and snipped Santa’s Web connection.
“Yesterday we received reports that the automated Santa Claus agent in Windows Live Messenger used inappropriate language. As soon as we were alerted, we took steps to mitigate the issue, including the removal of language from the agent’s automated script. We were not completely satisfied with the result of these actions, and have decided to discontinue the automated Santa Claus agent,” Microsoft said in a statement sent to Network World. (See more bad Microsoft ideas.)
Once the report of the randy Santa broke, questions prodding Santa to give up even more questionable answers took off like eight tiny reindeer.
Some users got Santa to comment on his sexual orientation, others to reveal a criminal side.
One person said “…..come on you like big hairy men -- don't hide it!” To which Santa responded, “I know, I know. I just hope you won't get mad at me.”
The references to sex acts, first reported by British news outlet The Register, came when the bot was answering questions about eating pizza. At the time, the bot was chatting with two girls age 11 and 13.
Microsoft recently added the corpulent and foul-mouthed artificial Santa as a bot that Windows Live Messenger users could insert into their IM buddy list as firstname.lastname@example.org.
The bot would coax users to participate in a friendly game called Factory Frenzy where the user helps out Santa’s elves. But it is the chat where Santa references sex acts and uses phrases such as “dirty bastard.”
Microsoft officials first responded by cleaning up Santa’s lap-side manner. After the upgrade, when asked about pizza, according to The Register, Santa says, “If you need a break to go eat, I will be right there when you come back.”
