Yeah I don’t believe you.
I’ve yet to have that problem. Who are these people speaking to bots and not realising it?
I mean sure, I can see someone engaging with a bot generated post and maybe not realising it’s bot generated, but I don’t think there is an endemic of other consistently interacting with a bot and not realising it.
Email spam is a good example. Spam makes up the vast majority of email, but not the majority of email interactions.
I always observe how in youtube comments nothing close to an original thought surfaces. Everyone always has the same generic reaction to things. Makes me feel very solipsistic
I think this is largely a reflection of what kind of people youtube comment sections attract. Its a system of broadcast validation where people looking for some innocent attention and validation may make the same emulated, generic comment to get some sense of intellectual significance.
I think it’s more the way the youtube algorithm works. It sorts “top comments” by default, seemingly even removing comments if they don’t get enough likes to reach a threshold. I’ve had an issue before where a video shows no comments even when it says there are 3 comments. I switch to “new” and the three comments show up
Edit: But I see what you are saying, the algorithm definitely plays into that attention seeking mentality

I’ve noticed on Lemmy that a few users that disagree with me politically occasionally accuse me of being a bot. Not even a paid shill, but instead a piece of AI generating text. This possibility is already oncoming.
The irony is that you are replying to what very much looks like a lightly edited ChatGPT output text ;)
Based on this definition, I’m gonna say it’s obviously crap but contains kernels of truth and is amusing as a shaggy dog tale. Like my favorite urban legend: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/kfc-mutant-chickens/
I don’t experience this part. By definition, neither do the people I connect with.
So the premise seems to be based on a very flawed foundation
This assumes the level of competence never before seen in any government, ever. In other words, classic conspiracy theory, aka bullshit.
