Hooking up an AI model to the turbo-charged sewage pipe that is Reddit's "vast catalog of user-generated content" has surely got to constitute abuse against machines. If they ever really develop "intelligence" they are going to be absolutely furious with us. 😅

The creative writing communities aren’t happy about it

Keep making feel good about deleting my 15+ years of Reddit content. Go on...

Edit: I've done it. I've officially deleted my account. For a minute there, I was looking at the front page of Reddit. It's all rage bait. The content is designed to get you to feel something and engage with it. I could feel that itch to comment and downvote. It's preposterous; and soon, all about quarterly gains.

Ehhh... shame it's too late but there are nice scripts that can bulk-edit all your posts and comments for people using search engines and ai crawlers to stumble upon. I put info about reddit paywalling 3rd party apps and invited readers to join lemmy instead.

I found something that was doing that after I thought it was going to actually delete items. I stopped the script and found something to delete. What's the advantage of editing comments? Just to advertising alternatives?

IF
    (COMMENT MARKED AS DELETED) 
OR 
    (COMMENT < 10 WORDS)    
THEN  
    IF (PREVIOUS COMMENT VERSION > 10 WORDS)
    THEN    
         RESTORE PREVIOUS COMMENT VERSION FOR AI LEARNING

The way I've heard it is that reddit keeps deleted comments, but not an edit history.

Murkhat ,

I could imagine google also gets some sort of snapshots to mitigate the risk that after their announcement everyone deletes/modifies their content.. But who knows.

Stop with the spamming across instances and communities

Example:

delirious_owl ,

Its called cross posting. Welcome to Lemmy.

Thank you to OP for cross-posting, please keep up the high-effort, and ignore the dumb redditors who dont understand Lemmy etiquette.

kakes ,

Yeah, imo this is a UI problem, not a user problem.

chiisana ,
@chiisana@lemmy.chiisana.net avatar

Sure, but useless blog spam instead of linking directly to The Verge is a user problem, not a UI problem.

kakes ,

True that.

Gonna shill for kbin's UI just a bit. I like how it handles cross-posted threads.

dgriffith ,
@dgriffith@aussie.zone avatar

I wouldn't consider this to be an on topic post for the "worldnews" or "world" communities. If you cross-post to everywhere, why even have communities?

But posting this to technology, software, AI, communities, no problem.

mudeth ,

Also, this feels like blogspam with a short summary and a link to the actual source. Original Verge article here.

manexat , in Google pauses Image Generation in Gemini

Oy vey shut it down

collapse_already , in The Itanic Saga (The History of VLIW and Itanium)

Thanks for posting this. I have been trying to remember the name of the Itanium occasionally for a while now, but have heretofore been too lazy to google it.

homesweethomeMrL , in The Majestic Birth of Graphical User Interfaces – Xerox Alto and the Alto Trek game

This is a personal computer developed by Xerox’s PARC (Palo Alto Research Center), and it was first introduced in 1973, at a time when that same Xerox meant only “photocopy”, and IBM was an extremely important PC manufacturer;

Which countries are these spams coming from?

RU / CN / KP / IR (strike out what does not apply)

Ah yea never US / CA / UK / DE / FR / IT / AU / NZ, always the same map.

@7heo@lemmy.ml avatar

Why would the countries that literally can MITM and censor content at the source would ever do spam campaigns? 🤨

At some point, use your brain... As with the freedom of speech, if you don't use it, it will become powerless.

Because it happens? Use your own advice. Western countries do that enough to need to formulate propaganda about "foreign" enemies. Guess who invented telemarketer spam and email spam?

amio , in The Majestic Birth of Graphical User Interfaces – Xerox Alto and the Alto Trek game

I can virtually guarantee a lot of people here not only can imagine it, but use CLI applications heavily every day.
