Automatic job counselor

Quick good advice about jobs

This is a very simple robot. If asked "should I quit my job?" it says yes and offers encouragement.

Anyone who has reached the point of asking a stranger--human or machine--for advice like that really wants to quit, so we encourage them.

The money-making part of this is that it tracks the jobs that people are quitting, and connects paying customers with those opportunities.

When I first posted this, someone annotated it with her personal marriage problem, thinking the idea was an actual automated counselor. I deleted her posting out of decency since she even included her name. [mrthingy, Oct 04 2004]
