Ask HN: What's most annoying about using AI assisted completions?

I've been reading about extensions such as Tabnine and Copilot, which claim to give you ai assisted completions.

Those of you who use these extensions, what do you find most annoying about using them?

most of the time, the completion is only half correct. But I have to either apply the entire result (and then spend time removing the unwanted part) or apply nothing at all. hope to have a better ui to choose which part to apply.

sometimes, the completion isn't syntax-correct, for example, with unmatched parenthesis .

Spell check has gotten much worse, many times an early one char fix is undetectable by these "ai" tools

Another thing I've seen is people editing to remove the yellow line in Grammarly, trying to appease the algorithm rather than make good prose
