Close. I was worried that we had someone was going to write an IN
efficient messenger service spammer with perl. Specifically, one that was destined to be used in a cruel or stupid prank. Imagine a 12-year-old who just heard about a new way to send untraceable messages on the school network. Now imagine the content of the messages: "Korn Rulez! Britney Sux!" "Suzy Wilson's a slut!" "Bobby Cantwell's a dork!" "There's a bomb in the library. -Osama bin Ladin"
Morover, I've never actually seen the Messenger service used for the purpose for which it was intended.
"What do I want? I'm an American. I want more."
