    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.
