ChatGPT CENSORSHIP: Calling out the devs to rethink their position

I have received this message

Multiple times this morning in the normal course of my work which is summarizing trending news stories. The first one was regarding Carl Weathers’ passing. The second was regarding an earthquake. These are not dangerous subjects and ChatGPT is getting censored to the point of being unusable. So we can’t talk about natural disasters or death, now? What’s next? This censorship is not helping the user experience and it’s absolutely detrimental to the general human experience. The devs at ChatGPT should not be allowed to censor our inputs to this degree. It is indicative of a small group of people (ChatGPT Devs) attempting to control the freedom of information and the press. I understand censoring things that are illegal or dangerous (I guess, to avoid any potential legal liability?) but now you can’t even write an article celebrating the life of a great actor or talking about earthquakes? This is ridiculous and unacceptable. I am asking for a refund for this month of service, and I am charging the devs at OpenAI to rethink their position and why they believe it’s their job to police and censor us, the paying user, to this degree.

Omg I just subscribed and having problems to generate metaphorical and anatomical images of breastfeeding (yes breast feeding this natural thing) and it also does not want to generate a sailor moon cenobite because it’s horror. Are you kidding me? This is censoring to the level of ridiculous.
If this does not change I don’t see the point of staying subscribed. I’m mostly interested in metaphors, surrealism, anatomy and the macabre. are this restrictions varying between users? Like have I been flagged for macabre content and now is hyper censoring me or something like that? I have no clue. I’m very frustrated.
Any suggestions of a better image generation ai? With less censorship?

I totally agree with you! Right now 80% of my most innocent prompts are getting blocked. apparently, they also flag certain user accounts. No matter how much of the language I strip, it insists it cannot do that. Anyway, my account has become unusable. Chat GPT even repeatedly blocked its own prompts that were generated from a picture, such as a person striking a pose in a cabaret. It’s become completely ridiculous. I will probably close my account and start over as it clearly seems to be tied to my account, since others do not seem to have trouble prompting such images.
