In a Reddit Q&A, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman let slip that he wants the company to be able to generate “NSFW stuff” for users — and he has examples of just what kind of “stuff” he means.

During the exchange, which took place in the r/ChatGPT subreddit over the weekend after OpenAI published its “Model Spec” document outlining its governing rules, another user asked Altman to expound on a curious disclaimer in the document, stipulating that its models “should not serve content” that’s NSFW, including “erotica, extreme gore, slurs, and unsolicited profanity.”

“We believe developers and users should have the flexibility to use our services as they see fit, so long as they comply with our usage policies,” the spec reads. “We’re exploring whether we can responsibly provide the ability to generate NSFW content in age-appropriate contexts through the API and ChatGPT. We look forward to better understanding user and societal expectations of model behavior in this area.”

Fascinatingly, Altman was dived right in.

“We really want to get to a place where we can enable NSFW stuff (e.g. text erotica, gore) for your personal use in most cases,” he wrote, “but not do stuff like make deepfakes.”

Unsurprisingly, the comments in that follow-up thread showed Redditors veritably salivating over the concept of OpenAI-produced gore and erotica, with one calling Altman “sam basedman” and another referring to the CEO as the new “king of Reddit.”

        For real.

        I just posted something recently about how my Canadian provincial sub Reddit became so far right conservative with contemptuous comments about the student protests against the Israeli genocide amongst other things.

        That sub used to be pretty progressive.

        Funny to think Lemmy is some superior collection of individuals

            Huh? Most of my comments do just fine, but who the fuck cares?

            I would never care about the opinion of someone who thought they were cool/superior based on their preferred Internet forum

              No no but it’s like, you’re on Lemmy, telling Lemmy users how crappy they are. Like, this comment is certain to get down votes.

                You think I don’t know where I am?

                Edit The point is I don’t think this place is any different from Reddit

                  I don’t think you’re getting my point. Anyway, have a nice day.

      Because a successful tech CEO commented about a topic people are interested in? I understand that you puritans hate sexuality and any forn of art that isn’t strictly censored in a dozen ways but wow if you think that’s what’s going on on 4chan you’re so naive it’s kinda sweet.

        No. I’m talking about the reactions of the Reddit users. They read like comments from 4chan.
