The debate about what to do with useless Medium articles will continue on DN but after today seeing someone post an 150 word article about the headphones he's using, which was really an amazon referral link, I think it's time we draw the line. DN is full of useless crap lately and a great chunk of it is coming from Medium.
I don't think it would be fair to automatically block all articles for all users, so why don't we make it optional instead? People will still be allowed to post Medium articles, but any reader who decides he/she can get no value out of them, can simply hide them from the feed. Another way of getting them out of the way would be to move them to a dedicated tab.
What do you think?
