Submission + - Microsoft unleashes perverted Santabot on children

ShieldW0lf writes: Microsoft has been encouraging children to chat with "Santa" by adding northpole@live.com to their contact lists. The bot would pretend to be Santa, asking what they want for Christmas and replying intelligently.

Until, one fateful day, a young girl invited Santa to eat pizza too many times, only to have Santa say "You want me to eat what?!? It's fun to talk about oral sex, but I want to chat about something else."

Microsoft spokesman Adam Sohn said the company's engineers tried to clean up Santa's vocabulary, but even after making changes to the software, the company wasn't comfortable keeping him online.
