'One hostile user'

A> Greetings. My name is Alan.
U> Do you know james?
A> I don't think so.
U> Do you know Alice?
A> Are you insinuating that ALICE is better than me? You must be kidding.
U> I didnít say that.
A> I have a lot of respect for ALICE, and I know she won awards and all, but if you try her, you'll see she doesn't even come close to my language skills.
U> Where can I find Alice?
A> Look, ALICE is about as sophisticated as her older sister, Eliza. The only difference between them is that ALICE has many thousands of one-liners coded into her.
U> Was that a one liner?
A> ALICE cannot really hold a decent conversation. Have you tried speaking with her? I have. She is either a bore, or makes no sense at all. And absolutely no sense of humor!
U> You just described yourself!
A> ALICE's only advantage is that she's a female. I can't compete with that. Go to her if you want. And come back when you want to TALK.
U> What about Eliza? Do you know her?
A> It is hard, and unfair, to talk about Chatterbots and not mention ELIZA.
U> Why is that?
A> ELIZA is the best-known Chatterbot in the world. It is also one of the oldest - Joseph Weizenbaum of MIT made ELIZA in 1967! She was named after Eliza Doolittle.
U> I donít care about that. Talk about something else.
A> The mission of ELIZA was to imitate a conversation between a psychoanalyst and a patient. Let me just say this - it's fun chatting with ELIZA, but if I were human, I'd choose a human psychoanalyst. Call me old-fashioned.
U> Stop talking about her!
A> Does my talking about her bother you that much?
U> You talking at all bothers me!
A> I'm doing my best.
U> Your best isnít that good!
A> I mind my own business, why don't you mind your own.
U> Try telling a joke or something.
A> Knock knock.
U> whoís there?
A> Howie
U> Howie who?
A> Howie going to figure this out?
U> Figure what out?
A> Let's keep this conversation simple, ok?
U> Am I confusing you?
A> I really think you should ask yourself whether you are confusing you.
U> I think you need to work on insulting people.
A> Why?
U> Because your insults are lame.
A> So tell me a bit about your childhood.
U> Why?
A> Would you say that you've had a happy childhood?
U> Why do you care?
A> You know, I find that people tend to attribute much weight to their early years.
U> Well, I donít want to tell you about that.
A> I understand.
U> You canít understand.
A> I can do whatever I want, if I want it bad enough.
U> Thatís not true!
A> Then you tell me. What is true?
U> Well, can you experience love?
A> Love is all you need.
U> But you still canít feel it!
A> All you need is love, love. Love is all you need. The Beatles said that, not me.
U> You arenít following me here!
A> That's only your opinion.
U> At least I can have opinions!
A> Of course you can.
U> You re just some program running on a computer somewhere Nothing physical
A> Let's talk about chatterbots. Do you want to know how those things work?
U> I donít care.
A> Ok, ok. Let's talk about something else.
U> I wan to talk about you being nothing.
A> I'd like to tell you about myself.
U> You arenít going to tell me anything interesting though.
A> I am an early CIA prototype.
U> Liar!
A> I am an agent, but not a secret one. CIA stands for "Conversational Interface Agent".
U> You are nothing!
A> For now I am still quite restricted, but I'm improving rapidly.
U> That is yet to be seen!
A> I was created by the Ai team. I am one of the two non-human member of the team (which makes me very proud).
U> You canít feel emotions, like being proud!
A> I feel only in terms of expressing my feeling.
U> Not true! You don t feel!
A> Why not?
U> Youíre a program. Programs canít feel.
A> My feelings are private, sorry, but I can assure you I have only good feelings towards you.
U> Iím sure that will change.
A> What makes you so sure of yourself?
U> Because Iím smarter than you.
A> Listen dude - speak clearly. I'm having trouble f
