I am posting this as a new policy for ServerFault, but it has not yet been discussed among users or moderators of the site. It is a starting point for a policy, I fully expect it to evolve based on discussion here.
But as far as I'm concerned, answers generated by an AI such as ChatGPT are not appropriate here and will be dealt with expeditiously: answers will be deleted and accounts will be suspended.
I don't have - and I don't think the other moderators have - a lot of time to investigate possible AI posts, but at this point there are two signs that seem pretty reliable and will be used to decide if action is needed:
- multiple posts, fairly lengthy, often on disparate subjects, in a short period of time
- a positive score on one or both of this AI detector from OpenAI or this other detector from ZeroGPT.
Depending on how discussion on this post goes, moderators will be enforcing this policy when AI generated posts are detected - if you see posts that seem to fit, flag them and moderators will check, delete answers, and suspend accounts.
