Whaddaya do when when you think someone's pasting AI responses your way?

I went to a favorite online place and was happy to see I had a reply to peruse... except by the time I got to the end of it I was under the distinct, disappointing impression it was the kind of hollow, prosaic verbiage I've come to expect from so-called AI.

Grant it, I've no proof, so that impression could have been the result of too-much-yardwork mental weariness.

But I was still on and off again aghast, wondering how long I've been.. gamed?

And how does that possibility matter going forward?

I've been increasingly suspicious of the notion of individuality the last several years, and the possibility of regularly interacting with non-human text chefs feels a sort of foot push in the back whilst stumbling down a plank off the good ship personhood, if you will....
