Knock It Off! These Comments Just Make Me Sick

  • 2 min read

It wasn’t the Crypto comments, the Get Rich Quick scams, or impersonation attacks, that made me angry.

When Adrienne Gibs, Director, Creator Growth @ Medium, shared in What We’re Reading a selection of stories, she also pointed out how important the comments section is.

I couldn’t agree more.

As always I checked the comments to see what other Medium members are thinking about Medium’s latest selection of stories.

It wasn’t the Crypto comments, the Get Rich Quick scams, or impersonation attacks, that made me angry.

I’ve seen them all before.

For the first time, I saw AI-generated comments!

I’m not kidding.

As you can see in the featured image of this story someone prompted ChatGPT to write a story about the importance of comments and hit publish.

I almost threw up… what is this? Spam?

I checked the commenter’s profile.

He’s not a member and all his stories are AI-written.

What does this person want on Medium?

Have you also seen AI-written comments?
