No it does not work like that because not every single time will the
auto response respond. However it will respond like once every 10
minutes or so so indeed this is possible if you don't mind spending the
time. Additionally you could just do that from several screen names and
it might be effective. HOWEVER AIM can be programmed not to respond
with the away message to people on your list.
That kind of throws a kink in the whole thing right there.
I cc'ed the list because I think this is important point; you can
configure aim (for windows not sure about other platforms) to NOT
respond with an auto response if the person is not on your list.

so if someone is away with an auto reply. you can message them, receive
their awway message, warn 35%, restart and repeat 2 times to get them up
to 100% that easyt?
