Yeah, I was visiting one website, and to test whether it was a real person or not I started saying some abrasive, ignorant, sexual comments. I probably shouldn't say them on this blog, but eventually this "agent" said "that was rude, I'm leaving now". I'm not sure whether that means it's a real person, but I'm still not entirely convinced. Entertaining to be jerking with their program though.

they are programmed to respond to buzz words. for example, you can type untelligable comment but use the buzz words "live" "real" and Intellichat software is programmed to respond "i am a live virtual agent. :)" pls pay attention, live "virtual" agent. they are not real. you ask a basic question, and they will keep answering with the same speil over and over again. and if you dilly dally, it is programmed to say "i am moving on now" to get you nervous so you do not lose your "chance" at such a "deal."
it is not a human being on the other end but rather a software program.
