Getting spam back from the API

Is it normal to receive spam back as a response from the API. Here is some example text I’m seeing in the response. It has nothing to do with my prompt.

Yes, it can be “normal” for generative AIs to generate a lot of blah, blah, blah…

If you need further help, please post the text of your prompt, and the details of your API params and I can test for you and provide more detailed feedback in reply.


Ok well don’t laugh at what I last asked it because I was frustrated. LOL.

Here is what I have:
// Set up the request body
string requestBody = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(new
model = “davinci”,
prompt = “In less than 500 characters, provide a response to the following question/request. (Do not repeat any sentences in the response. Also, do not return spam or any text unrelated to the question. Just answer the following question/request: Compose a sample email following up with a lead that would like to sign up to use our service. She mentioned that she will be using our service, and I’d like to follow up and also let her know that we have a tutorial she can watch to get started.”,
//examples_context = "Q: " + prompt,
max_tokens = 500

So this is usually how I ask chat gbt when I do it manually on the web site version, and he usually brings back great responses. Not so great with the api version.
I’m using this endpoint:

Hi @earthsendangered

Here is an “API version” but it uses my custom Rails UI for easy testing:

However, I used text-davinci-003 and not davinci first:





Appendix; Set Up

Thanks for your help. I’m getting good results nows!
