The question is simple: should we have a
marketing tag (I’d prefer to totally not have any marketing here but I don’t know everyone else’s opinion).
This post was triggered by a post (https://lobste.rs/s/gliewl/pilosa), just the name as a title and the direct link to the website.
It was upvoted, so the community is not enough to fence off from these posts.
Also this is an extreme, of course, but I’ve seen lots of posts being littered with “but we at XYZ do things differently, we do A, B and C!”, which should also count as marketing.
What do you all think? If someone wants those in their feed, so be it, but I’d love to have a way to filter out ads from lobste.rs.
