Just rig up a good internet chatterbot to listen to your complaints and offer plentiful, if useless, advice. This should help prevent complainers, like me, from driving away all their friends.

Yeah, there is Eliza. But this would actually be helpful.

       Most of the MSN over-40 chat sites fulfill this description. At least the ones I used to host.

       I'd prefer to see a feedback type device that would give complainers an electrical shock.

       <completely off topic, sorry> I just did an interesting experiment with Eliza. If you open her in two browser windows, and copy her answer from one window into your input in the other, she gets all recursive. As in: You: Why do you tell me you were not a girl just now just now just now just now? Eliza: Oh, i tell you i was not a girl just now just now just now just now. <cot,s>
