Cheers!

Part of me enjoys watching the Internet as we know it burn itself down, because, even prior to ChatGPT, it was full of recycled and derivative content. The software-driven world often has a way of moving way faster than it has a right to, and checks and balances — in whatever form they take — are a blessing.
