Update regarding AI-generated content

At, we recognize the technological advancements and capabilities of artificial intelligence (AI) in generating content. However, our priority remains to spotlight and uphold content that is the product of human insight, expertise, and lived experiences.

We believe that it is through this emphasis on human-created content that we can ensure the authenticity, validity, and reliability of the information shared across our platform. We value the unique perspectives, nuanced understanding, and the richness of thought that comes with human authorship.

While AI has demonstrated an ability to create increasingly convincing content, we believe it's important to maintain a clear distinction between human and AI-generated content to preserve the integrity and personal touch inherent in human writing. This stance aligns with our commitment to fostering a genuine, insightful, and engaging community.
