A post like the following might go there:
I get messaged all the time on AIM, mostly from chat rooms or random chat. My profile has this paragraph:
quote:2) Photo: This link will open up a window with my webcam - I'm probably on it. If you see a fish tank, or something on it other than me, that probably means that I've just woken up and have not combed my hair, or something.
Now, check out this conversation I just had:

At least he(?) was smart enough to end the conversation there.
