I think now is a good time to have that talk. I love DN, I check it multiple times a day. I love it because it's an amazing source of news surrounding our industry, it's one of the richest sources of interesting content and is often the ammo for a lot of the things I tweet about.
More and more the front page is being filled with these 'share your ... profile' posts which become giant threads of links to people's profiles on which ever network, personally I don't think this is news and it dilutes the excellent content that's normally filling the front page.
If everyone loves these posts so much, I wish they'd appear somewhere else, it would be silly to have a section for them, so maybe we could just burn them with fire?
