Yeah, $50 doesn't begin to cover what we'd lose by letting sponsored posts into the fediverse.

The answer, again, is no.

So I'm not entirely against sponsored content. If it's transparent and obvious and filterable then our clients can move past them.

THIS post however is content hijacking; they're not even paying you to write content but manipulate EXISTING forms. That shit is rancid.

@jalcine @matt I felt like a pariah when I was following marketing trends and everyone there was really excited about content that wasn't 'traditional' marketing. For example, a blog post written like all others on a car review site, but sponsored by Ford. That's misleading. I'm a little put off by podcasters and "influencers" too. It's one thing to use and like Squarespace and get paid by them and it's another to stage a photo of you using a backpack. It's all still advertising. :blobpats:
