Warning sounded over 'flirting robots'

Warning sounded over 'flirting robots' | Beyond Binary - A blog by Ina Fried - CNET News.com [via Slashdot]
"According to Ina Fried, a chatbot is making the rounds that successfully emulates an easily-laid woman. As such, it dupes lonely Russian males into divulging personal and financial details at a rate of one every three minutes. All jokes aside — and a lot of them come quickly to mind — that sure sounds like the Turing Test to me."

You know, for some strange reason I never thought that someone might use human sexuality to somehow defeat the Turing Test, but now that I think about it, it makes perfect sense (and I don't think it breaks the rules of the test).

Why not pre-weaken a human's sensibility with sex during or before the test?
