Do you think BBCode is cool for writing chatbot?

I don't think so personally, but do you think BBCode is appropriate as a chatbot authoring language?
Code: [Select]
[io] * told me to say *
[o]Why would *1 tell you to say "*2"?[/o]
[o]Did you say "*2" after *1 told you to?[/o]
[/io]

I also wouldn't think so personally, though I've not got much experience with BBCode.  Looks like it was designed for a very narrow/ specific domain/ usage though.

I would use a 'proper' language, with plenty of flexibility and low level commands/ functions for writing those 'odd' functions that are usually required.

Really it's just enclosing things in tags - AIML could be laid out the same way as that's just XML.

Code: [Select]
<category>
<pattern>HELLO THERE</pattern>
<template>Hey, you are you ?</template>
</category>

Code: [Select]
[c]
[p]HELLO THERE[/p]
[t]Hey, how are you ?[/t]
[/c]

With ElfScript I used short command names to minimise typing and ease readability.

depends does it have memory to fill in from an external environment/user talking to it...  then i guess it could,  thats all it needs.
