To quote myself from here:
Ok, I'm getting a bit annoyed that all the links I tried to follow on this post don't lead me to the projects' homepages, but instead to some person's blog posts, who also don't include links to the projects.
I don't know if they serve ads on that blog and that's way (NoJS ftw), but in any case: not cool.
I don't remember OCSMag being like this.
A lot of posts in the free software subreddits come from one user (/user/mofongo), and they link either OCSMag (and from there, link to dedoimedo.com), or directly to dedoimedo.com. Often (but not always), even though they discuss software projects, they do not link to the project homepage, but to other posts in the same blog, making me feel like I'm on a hamster wheel. To me that's verging on bad-faith spamming.
Is the cop in my head taking over and I should just accept this is the price to pay for browsing only /new, or do you also see a need for policy on this?
