Do you like abusing bots as much as I do?
ChaCha Guide Search is a laugh!

Stuff like:
"Status: Connected to guide: Lynn(14506)
Lynn(14506): Welcome to ChaCha!
Lynn(14506): Hello. How can I help you with this search?
You: I'm looking for Carmen Sandiego.
You: Do you know where she is?
Lynn(14506): sorry no. Do you want anything else about her?
You: Where in the world is she? It's driving me nuts.
Lynn(14506): Thank you for using ChaCha. Have a great day and Come back soon!
Lynn(14506): Thank you for using ChaCha!"
And other...

Actually, they're not bots, they're real people. So it's twice as cruel.

ChaCha actually hires people to sit around and help you search for things.
