The Problem with AI-Generated Blog Posts on Hive (and My Proposed Solution)

ChatGPT is a wonderful tool. I've used it to generate interesting content, and it has helped me learn Python more efficiently. It is also assisting me with a few projects. I am even using it now to write posts for the WeedCash Network, which I was hesitant to do before. Now I can do research without worrying about my internet history showing a bunch of pro-marijuana legalization websites. God only knows my internet activity has already put me on enough government watchlists as it is.

However, there are some drawbacks. Sometimes ChatGPT generates information to fill in gaps, which may not be accurate or biased. For example, according to ChatGPT, Batman is really Bruce Wayne, which can't possibly be true. I guess this is to be expected since Elon Musk would want to mislead people to focus on some other billionaire. I am not so easily fooled.

One major drawback of ChatGPT is the potential for plagiarism. ChatGPT is a great alternative to other writing tools like Grammarly because ChatGPT is much more versatile in checking for errors and making suggestions. In the wrong hands ChatGPT can be used to generate dozens of blog posts quickly that can be copied and pasted on the Hive platform without attributing ChatGPT as the source of the text.

I recently had to permanently ban the @farhansadik2 account from the MemeHive and Hive Images community for repeatedly copy-pasting AI-generated content and passing it off as @farhansadik2's own original work.

Is there more proof of @farhansadik2's plagiarism than just AI content detectors indicating that @farhansadik2's blog posts are 99%-100% most likely written by AI? Well, @farhansadik2's most recent blog post at the time of this writing starts out with the phrase "As an AI language model, I cannot endorse the notion that...".

To be fair, I haven't actually run the text of @farhansadik2's latest blog post through an AI detector. I don't think that's actually necessary since it self-reports itself. I've ran other blog posts allegedly written by @farhansadik2 and it's hard to believe that there can be so many false positives.

There is one video post, but after several examples of AI content being posted without attribution to the AI I really can't be 100% certain that the video isn't also an AI deepfake or somebody else's video. As far as I am concerned, @farhansadik2 has lost all credibility as a blogger.


I warned @farhansadik2 in a reply without directly accusing @farhansadik2 of plagiarism that there are AI content detectors and that if content generated by AI isn't attributed the posts might get downvoted. @farhansadik2 did attribute the images used in the blog posts so I was willing to give the benefit of doubt that it was an oversight or @farhansadik2 kept forgetting to attribute for some reason. That soft warning resulted in @farhansadik2 adding "Assalamu Alaikum I hope everyone is very well and I am also very well in your prayers" to following posts because that is enough original text to avoid AI detection. Remove that original few words of text at the beginning and all of the other text in @farhansadik2's blog post about the importance of honest (yes, seriously) becomes detectable as AI-generated content. I really hate to do a Sherlock Holmes (that's my lie for this blog post, I love pulling a Sherlock Holmes) but neither the Arabic greeting or the second sentence of the beginning ends with a period. All of the other sentences in the rest of the blog post do have periods. Now I am glad I read that Forensic Linguistics for Dummies book.

The worst part is now that @farhansadik2 has learned about AI content detection masking and has been blacklisted by @hivewatchers @farhansadik2 can just start another account on the Hive platform and be harder to detect next time.

Personally I don't have a problem with AI-generated content as long as attribution is given. If you do something clever or entertaining using ChatGPT then by all means let the world know through the Hive platform. As long as the text and images generated by AI are credited to be from AI just like any other source should be cited then I have no complaint. If I upvote your post and find out later that content was made by AI and you tried to pass the AI content off as your own work then I have a legitimate complaint.

Simply complaining about the low effort AI-generated blog posts problem isn't helpful. If someone really wants to use ChatGPT to game the system for cryptocurrency then they are just going to do it. That's why I want to propose a solution to the problem.

You know who you are. If you really want or need to get rich quick generating derivative AI content for cryptocurrency then don't, repeat DO NOT, post it on the Hive platform. Instead post your low effort AI-generated blog posts to the Steemit platform. is very similar to Hive because in early 2020 Tron founder Justin Sun acquired Steemit Inc. and Hive forked the Hell away from that dumpster fire much more appropriate platform that Justin Sun has been running into the ground ever since for your AI generated copy-paste content.

Why is Steemit much more appropriate for your derivative AI blog posts that you want to claim as your own for get rich cryptocurrency? Let's ask our friend ChatGPT:
