    Can’t post a genius idea like this one without posting the links of the tools

          Not necessarily true. I overwrote several thousand comments with a different tool and used three different quotes on greed. I have periodically checked and about two dozen came back. I just manually changed them at that point.

        This would be better if it fed the parent comment into ChatGPT prefixed with “create a plausible but factually incorrect aggressive response to <comment>”

        Feed the machine to the machine!

      A tool like that would almost definitely require api access to function. If that was still possible, most of us wouldn’t be here having this conversation.

        No it didn’t use the API. You had to run it in browser and be logged in to reddit.

      • The tool I used had an extension for Firefox. You then used that Reddit extension so you could get more scrolling on your post history. Then you pressed a button and it would insert gibberish for all comments and posts. Then you’d go next page and do it again.

      Ever since they locked down their API pretty much every tool broke. I made sure to run everything a few days before leaving Reddit for good during the API fiasco last summer.

      That doesn’t mean nobody’s made anything that will work now. But yeah, all the old tools are broken.
