I propose that we officially ban ChatGPT and other computer-generated questions and answers with the following text on our help page:

AI-assisted Generated Content Ban

Please be aware that all AI-assisted generated content (including ChatGPT) is currently banned. This community has chosen to adopt the policy from Stack Overflow. For more information, see:

  • Vote for the one you like. Feel free to comment or post a new question with a different proposed ban.

  • 8 upvotes on the question, 10 upvotes on the "yes" answer, 0 upvotes on the "no" answer. Seems pretty definitive. Posting the policy.

  • @AdamRice Thanks for raising this. The mods are aware of the ongoing network-level discussions about AI generated content, though I had not personally seen this open letter.

Yes, I support adopting the ban.

  • I reiterate my previous argument in favour of this policy.

    @DavidW Yeah, I kind of figured there was general support for a ban. But based on a comment on another answer to that same meta question, I wanted to get confirmation as well as some specific language for the community to vote on.

    That's fair; this question is clear and unambiguous, and makes a good target for "this has already been decided [link]" comments. I just didn't feel like condensing my argument down to the size of a comment, but still felt it was relevant. :)

No, I do not support adopting the ban.
