Salmoning is a web phenomenon where an aim bot connects two random people. The bot sends each person a random message (like "I pity the fool!") and waits for a confused response. If the person responds, the connection is made. Whatever they type in gets sent to the other person. Each person thinks the other started the conversation.

The transcripts are funny to read. Sometimes the convos go well, sometimes they go very poorly.

Check out this convo. One person is web-savvy, the other person is very slow on the uptake. Hilaylay.

I actually was "hatted" (when it was called that) a long time ago. Pretty weird. I thought it was a friend of mine because his screen name was kind of similar. Not so much, though.

I never kept a LJ but that sounds pretty fun.
