As some of you may be aware a new policy came into effect recently, whereby moderators network wide were told to not moderate new content on the site solely on the basis of it being AI generated.
If not, here is an article about the situation to catch you up to speed.
And while this is more of a Stack Overflow problem, I'm both striking in solidarity with moderators across the network and because we have a problem with what are considered low quality posts but not very low quality posts generated by AI tools like ChatGPT, mainly on story-id posts.
The reason this is a particular issue is, that to the untrained eye these are simply technically wrong answers, which we get plenty of but don't deserve deletion simply by being wrong, at least not if they're well intentioned and have put some effort in.
The new policy essentially tells us to leave their moderation to non-diamond moderators, who don't have the same tools to detect patterns of abuse that mark these out as different from regular users trying (and sometimes failing) to answer questions earnestly.
So I've signed (with my SE oauth login) this list of moderators on strike, and I'm downing moderator tools until we come to a better agreement with the company running the network.
I will be the first to admit, I'm not the most active mod on the site, but I am still striking out if principle.
Secondly, please hold me to this! If I slip into moderating habits on autopilot please call me out!
