And I think it's a bad fit for GT. Anything that gets mainpaged is going to stay on top as long as its on the mainpage, that has little to do with us. And I don't think the "more pageviews are better" mentality fits well with our spirit. The idea of encouraging clickbait here is a tiresome one, to my way of thinking. We're not competing here, and this (ever so subtly) puts us in competition with one another. The quiet voices, who often provide the most interesting, thoughtful stuff, may well be discouraged. Were we paid writers, well, it's a jungle out there, results matter. But we're not.
Thoughts? Am I just being a Negative Nancy?
