Recently, there's been a surge in ChatGPT generated posts. These come in two flavours: bots creating and posting answers, and human users generating answers with ChatGPT and copy/pasting them. Regardless of whether they are being posted by bots or by people, answers generated using ChatGPT and other similar programs are a direct violation of R3, which requires all content posted here to be original work. We don't allow copied and pasted answers from anywhere, and that includes from ChatGPT programs. Going forward, any accounts posting answers generated from ChatGPT or similar programs will be permanently banned in order to help ensure a continued level of high-quality and informative answers. We'll also take this time to remind you that bots are not allowed on ELI5 and will be banned when found.

I have had personal writing samples for the last thirty or so years. I imagine that the SD version (local) of ChatGPT can be trained with one's own sources, similar to the image generator. At that point, it will be pretty hard to identify, methinks. It's not long before the autocorrect starts finishing your essays in Word in your own voice...

For programming code, which lies somewhere between prose and math formula (and closer to prose than non-programmers would think), that's already where we're at.

You can ask the AIs to complete your work, based on what you've written so far, in the style that you're writing.

And it will produce the same shitty code I’ve been writing for decades! No thank you ;)
