So, I've been talking with Emma about it, and we were wondering- is it possible to get Salmoned if your IM details are only shown to friends?

I don't think so, but I'm gonna make this a public post and see!

could you please define what it means to be "salmoned"? The FAQ does not answer the very basics, like "what is a salmon".

It's an AIM-bot. It randomly IMs you if you post a public entry. If you try to respond, the message goes to another random user who is connected to your screenname (which is disguised as a salmon, too). Mostly you just yell at each other for being trolls or haxx0rs or something. It's supposed to be a "social experiment" or something.

....Now that I know what it is I won't be so hostile when I get "salmoned"... Yea, it's happened about 2 or 3 times now and I always turn hostile and block them after about 3 im's. Hah.. Now that I know, I can have fun.
