I remember when it was novel and interesting when we were learning how to cite online sources in MLA style. It never seemed useful to me to add a second 'retrieved' date for static documents, though of course for sources like Wikipedia it was vital. Now we have references to generative AI content. The recommendations mostly make sense, with one exception: stating the prompt. In many cases, the prompt may be paragraphs long. It doesn't make sense to include all this in the reference. A short paraphrase should do. Via Miguel Guhlin.
