Higher question-rate sites have already addressed chatbot-generated posting in an essentially universal negative way, for example:
- Temporary policy: ChatGPT is banned
- How can we determine whether an answer used ChatGPT?
- Why was my answer deleted for using ChatGPT even when I didn't?
- Use of ChatGPT to provide answers links to main meta:
- Could ChatGPT be a viable way to answer people's questions?
- Ban ChatGPT network-wide
- What is our policy on AI-generated content?
- Help Center: Why posting GPT and ChatGPT generated answers is not currently acceptable
Recently a bit of ChatGTP was added to a question in Astronomy SE by the author AFTER the question was already answered by the same user. They properly cited the generating website and made it clear what was being done, but it seems almost gratuitous ex post facto chatbotting. I assume it's only a matter of (a short) time before it's introduced here as well:
- Can we simply multiply a positive value to each pixel in order to enhance contrast and to discard Time Delay Integration technique?
Question: While this is being sorted out in the greater Stack Exchange Ecosystem of communities and some guidelines and procedures are worked out, should we at least temporarily ban chatbot-generated content in Space SE?
