    Can we add half of the stuff on Fast.Co?

      You know, it wouldn't surprise me, frankly, if some publishers were submitting their own articles and — now that there's open enrollment — creating sockpuppets or having their employees login to upvote articles.

        I saw Creative Market doing some of that here on DN. I don't mind people and publishers self-promoting and such, but at least in Creative Market's case, the content was Buzzfeed level (low) quality clickbait.

        The DN guidelines already addresses that:

        Inappropriate Content

        • Using voting rings either among friends, within a company, or using dummy accounts.
        • Using inflammatory, misleading, or click-bait headlines on otherwise acceptable content.

        Unacceptable Content

        • Spam
        • List-format articles ("10 ways to...", "30 examples of...", etc.) that are largely advertorial in nature.
