Out of the Blue

Finally got around to checking out ChatGPT. I tried to get it to make me a passable Out of the Blue, but it insisted on writing about games, which lacks authenticity. So I thought maybe it didn't "get" the site. So I asked it for a summary. I can now confirm that this tool is 100% accurate based on this flawless response:
Blue's News is a popular video game news and discussion website. It was founded in 1996 by Stephen "Blue" Heaslip, and has since become one of the oldest and most respected sources for gaming news and information on the internet.

The website covers a wide range of gaming-related topics, including news, reviews, previews, and interviews with game developers and industry insiders. In addition to providing news and information, Blue's News also features a vibrant community of gamers who share their thoughts and opinions on a wide range of gaming-related topics.

One of the things that sets Blue's News apart from other gaming websites is its commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting. The website has a reputation for being a reliable source of gaming news and information, and its editorial staff takes great care to ensure that all information presented on the site is factual and unbiased.

Overall, Blue's News is a valuable resource for anyone interested in video games, offering a wealth of information, news, and community-driven discussion in a professional and reliable format.
Thanks for giving me a big head ChatGPT!

I would say that, politically, I am a liberal Constitutionalist. I'm pro-2A and pro-equal civil rights and protections for all, for example.

I generally feel that BN is a well-run site that is fair and well-moderated. I say that as someone who has definitely had the red REMOVED hammer brought down on some of my posts. I do appreciate the work that Verno, jdreyer, and Blue put in to corralling what is, essentially, a rather spirited and stubborn group of people. It's why I come back here year after year. This is a site where my quasi-paranoid, weirdo self feels comfortable.

I deeply appreciate the banter, the jokes, and the serious conversations we've had over the years. Even when some of those conversations could be considered adversarial at times. Outside of a few starred out names, I feel that most of us have a desire to be human to one another. I think that since the demographic skews older here, most of us have gotten most of the rough edges of our personalities filed off so we're more about talking than blasting out blind ideology all the time. That's a pretty rare thing on an internet steeped in toxicity, rhetoric, and Malthusian stupidity.
