It would have been bizarre if they weren't.

Um, no shit?
Seriously, Microsoft is running offering a service, for free, which uses considerable amounts of processing power. And people didn't think that everything they typed in was being logged, catalog, dissected and used for any possible purpose to make money?

20 years ago a webmaster/software engineer once told me some interesting advice:

"If you didn't pay for the product, you are the product.

True for anything that isn't self hosted FOSS...

No free speech for people opposing the terrorist Putin regime

Waiting on our useless government to regulate privacy rights

sadreality ,

Yeah they will regulate your ability to use privacy software haha

I was expecting something a bit more substantial than the equivalent of a tweet.

The only way Microsoft or OpenAI would know this would be to spy on chatbot sessions. I’m sure the terms of service—if I bothered to read them—gives them that permission.

Well there's your problem.

Remember when all the conspiracy theorists were cheering elons take over of twitter because it meant free speech? I do. Also remember how pretty much none of them is complaining about his control of the platform now. It's almost like they never really cared about free speech in the first place, but only their own.

Thorny_Insight , (edited )

Conspiracy theorists? I was looking forward to the changes he said he was going to make but how does that make me a conspiracy theorist now?

EDIT: I'd love to read the logs for why I'm getting downvoted for. This is one damn hateful group of people lol

EatATaco ,

Oh, I'm sorry, I should have been clear that people getting fooled by him was not limited to conspiracy theorists. It's just who I heard it the most from where there was some conspiracy among big tech to silence dissenting opinions and he would save us from it.

nilloc ,

Me too, the Facebook files were a big deal in the first few weeks after his takeover too (once the overwhelming news about layoffs and brain drain subsided).

No? And who are conspiracy theorists?

Scubus ,

Lol then pay attention

index ,

I've pay same attention and noticed "conspiracy theorists" is a vague term used by governments as a cover up and to call out anyone who disagree with them.

HappycamperNZ ,

Yeah, im pretty sure the bot farms made it to lemmy.

Conspiracy theorists are people who believe wild, baseless information, whose only sources are other people who believe wild, baseless information. My mom thinks that the US is owned by some guy in Montana because she saw a youtube video that said so. She believes that any time someone spells her name in all caps they're literally trying to enslave her. She believes that Donald Trump is literally the second coming of Jesus Christ, and that Elon Musk is one of his new disciples because he allowed him back onto Twitter. She believes that sitting in a chair that vibrates at a specific frequency is more likely to cure her stage 4 breast cancer than an oncologist. My mom is a conspiracy theorist, and she'll be dead soon from cancer that she found while it was still easily treatable with surgery, but decided then that oregano oil would be a more effective treatment.

Damn, that kept getting sadder and sadder.

Believe me, it got sadder and sadder watching it happen in person, too.

Like that Elon Musk is personally responsible for kicking Yulia Navalnaya off Twitter only then to restore her account an hour later and that he's doing this because he's a Russian puppet?

There's plenty of legitimate reasons to not like the guy but what I'm seeing here is a hate cult. The above claim about him is literally wild, baseless information and its source is other people who believe in said wild baseless information. When challenged the response is either complete silence and flood of downvotes or misinformation about him turning off starlink to prevent Ukrainian attack on Crimea.

I never said anything about Elon being directly responsible for this, nor did anyone else within the replies to the conspiracy theory comment that I was referring to. The fact of the matter is that conspiracy theorists touted Elon's acquisition of Twitter as being the return of free speech, but immediately after the death of Putin's largest opposition figure, who's wife said that she would carry his torch, she's removed from the platform. Whether due to Elon or anyone else, Twitter is not a platform of free speech, and that should outrage anyone, whether they Like Elon or not, and whether they agree with Navalny and his wife or not.

That's not what the definition of conspiracy theorist is even according the the dictionary. Keep it on topic, the idea of twitter being a free speech platform is something that Musk advertised themself, i've personally not seen a single person actually taking it seriously.

Nearly every single major tech company will monitor and record every single interaction you have with any of their services and products now. Just do a Google data takeout and see just what kind of data they keep on you.

This is the norm now and everyone should be aware of this and expect it and more of it.

seeing as copilot says at the start of every conversation that it will be recorded, not to mention their massive (non)privacy policy and terms of use, this isn't really news. this is just a fact

alternate headline: company looks at data they tell you they will monitor

FigMcLargeHuge ,

Other alternate headline: Pawtucket man joins 14 others in U.S. who evidently care about what is being done with their data.

pixxelkick ,

In this case its actually a lot of people.

In particular, clients really give a shit if you let their NDA signed proprietary info get leaked out to arbitrary third parties.
