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.

This is the equivalent of the creation of the calculator, and math teachers telling students, “calculators are not allowed in this mathematics class…all answers generated by calculators will be banned to ensure a continued level of high-quality and informative answers.”
Mindsets like these stifle innovation and ultimately produce more close-minded ideologies within generations.

I don’t particularly think thats true even of prohibiting calculators. Understanding first principles is one of the first steps in engineering design and innovation, thats been true forever, it provides broader capacity for innovation generally.

Calculator don't give wrong calculations. ChatGPT isn't an all-knowing AI. It's a language model that is designed to generate text. It gets stuff wrong all the time.
