Random Cohobot Messages on IM

I have been receiving random and annoying messages through AIM for quite some time now. I have used the blocking feature and they still come through about once a week. Today I decided to do a search and I found out the answer.

It’s called Project Upstream.  The bots are called Fishbots and the version that I have been lucky enough to get are cohobots. The site is not rated G so I won’t post it here but suffice to say that if you have been receiving these foolish little messages, next time just reply with “$optout” and theoretically they will cease.

Wish me luck on this one. I don’t appreciate any unwelcome messages and thought that by blocking users who are not on my buddy list that this wouldn’t happen. Learn something new every day!
