    Default AI Rant

    Haven't posted in a while in my Blog here.. Thought I would now, Today's Rant... Artificial intelligence Bots. AI Bots for short.


    Read this.
    https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/...book-111612768

    It explains the issue. The situation is basicallu Ai bots are learning from everything posted and theres really no oversight. They consume the media and make it their own. If it was a person they would be sued for it but theres zero oversight and no recourse. Thats bad enough but these bots need practice using all this information and one way they are getting it is mascarading as people on social media platforms. The team here at Simply has spent alot of time trying to flag these non-people members. I have to say Its getting harder. It really ticks me off when they act like a person and even get welcomed...

    Hello,

    I'm new here and excited to join the SimplyDiscus forum. I’ve just started keeping discus fish and have a lot to learn.

    Can someone guide me on where to ask questions? I want to make sure I post in the right place to get good advice.

    Thanks

    To stabilize the pH level in your aquarium, consider using crushed coral or limestone in your filter, which can help buffer the water and prevent drastic pH changes. Regularly test your water and make small adjustments as needed. Additionally, using reverse osmosis (RO) water mixed with tap water can give you more control over the water parameters. Always make changes gradually to avoid stressing your fish.

    Open a new tab in Chrome and type chrome://flags in the address bar.
    In the search bar on the chrome://flags page, type “Proactive tab freeze and discard”.
    You’ll see an option for “Proactive tab freeze and discard”. Change it from “Default” to “Disabled”.
    Relaunch Chrome for the changes to take effect.
    This should help prevent tabs from refreshing automatically. However, please note that these settings may not be permanent and could reset when Chrome updates or if certain conditions trigger the browser’s built-in refresh logic.

    Is there a specific green discus strain you're looking for, and have you considered reaching out to the sponsors on this forum for assistance in finding the right one?

    How do you envision addressing the issue of broken or inappropriate links in the Planted Discus Tank Reference Links thread, considering the suggestion of consolidating and editing the list as a sticky at the top of the thread with new posts providing nominations or reporting broken links?


    WE use Robot.txt software to deter them, and try and flag them but its a continuous battle.

    Just a rant but I also want you to understand just how Pervasive this AI invasion in our day to day world is. Given enough Practice you will not know if you are talking to a real person or not. Now imagine those nasty social media posts.. wonder what kind of AI BOT will come from that.

    It's really bad. To my mind it is illegal – plagiarizing the internet.

    I know they're frustrating and getting harder to detect. Especially when they show a clean IP. They're obviously incorporating VPN's into their activity.

    Cloudflare has been doing a lot lately in regards to bot detection and other things. I can appreciate that they're taking a proactive approach to these sorts of issues.

    You should hop on to Facebook and see all the AI "nature photography" and recipe photos that people aren't intelligent enough to know aren't real.

    It's a shame because someone, somewhere probably has a real picture of some random cocktail that's actually contained inside of a glass. And certainly someone has a picture of these awesome birds nests that isn't totally phony.

    The thing is as the tech advances it will get much worse. You can almost assume any unusual photo or video is a fake.
