I got seven different outreach messages on LinkedIn from seven different people (that I didn’t know) representing seven different companies (that I had never heard of), offering seven different services (that it should be evident that I don’t need).
Based on their profiles, several of the people are not native English speakers and, at a glance, don’t use idiomatic English.
Despite this, there was an awful lot in common among the seven.
(Yes, awful is the word that comes to mind.)
So much so that I would suspect a ghostwriter.
But I expect that a human ghostwriter wouldn’t have this level of pointless consistency.
I suspect ChatGPT or perhaps some other Large Language Model.
I know that one of the common concerns is that AI systems write specially individualized convincing emails.
Perhaps not this week.
