Side thought: I tried the bot in an MSN group chat with some friends. Apart from fact that it currently responds to all user text as if they were attempted bot commands, it worked just fine. Nice way to have folks talk about the news, maybe? (for the generic bot too, not just the Persian one...). I invited them into a chat with the bot; not sure if it'd work the other way around.
