Better suggestion: use Archive.org, and help contribute to an open and accessible internet archive. https://archive.org/web/

They're a very serious and legit non-profit.

Support but it sounds like a lot of work for those of us who post most of the articles. Can people volunteer to do it after we post them?

f/meta would have been a better place for this suggestion.

I was suggesting it with the idea that the users would decide to do it themselves. I'll do it for every link I submit.

Yeah I post way too many links to do that - and I'm usually on mobile. Volunteers would need to step up to share the workload.

Perhaps ideally the site would one day have its own archiving service with a blacklist of corporate and shitty sites that it automatically archives itself when the person makes the submission.

I'm guessing that'd be a lot of work and also costly at the moment though?

is archive.is or pastebin not good?

They both have trackers embedded such as doubleclick and google analytics.

This site is trusted as no js is required and there is onion support to guarantee anonymity so it technically a better option and the user is on the site already.

It is just a suggestion anyway

What about just for mainstream sites? If the site is run by comrades, collectives, etc I think we should be directing traffic to their sites

I had corporate and media entities in mind when I wrote it. I fully agree with supporting comrades.

You can also post in the text of the OP . At least post the relevant section

This would also discourage people from posting clickbait.
