Finally a thread to biatch about the (Featured Partner) Links -- at least until this thread goes down the memory hole.


Serously, Drew, either drop the program or don't be such a chickenshiat and turn on comments on those links. It's the quality of the community in the threads that are Fark's stongest point. Fark isn't going to be able to compete with Reddit on quality of links.

Of course, I'm guessing you still care enough to not turn Fark into an experemental lab to see how much shiat the users will put up with before they leave the site in droves.  Don't have Fark end up like Digg.

I just wish they would open Featured Partner links to comments so we could all make sure that Drew knows how awesome the partner is and how we support those links.

Any takers, Drew?

This! Those featured partner BS links are something I will absolutely not click on, unless I can comment on 'em. I don't click on all the nutjob sites you always find in the politics tab simply to deny them the click too.

I have a beef on this too; as if "featured partners" are not deserving of our witty retorts or smart ass comments because they "pay to have their fine products on here". like, they couldn't take the "gentle chides" from your members- it IS fark, after all and sometimes the threads comments might even be positive- Really-

/awaiting banishment for free speech


I have yet to click on a  Featured Partner link, and I won't until I can read and post snarky comments about it or the headline in the comments section.

I refuse to click on links marked "Featured Partner." Some of them I would click, if they didn't say "Featured Partner." But they say "Featured Partner," so I don't.

Also shame on anyone for clicking on a featured partner link, it's your fault they're here. No clicks equal no value.

Here's my vote for dumping the partner links...they disrupt the flow of the site, & I'm more likely to click on an ad than these.

ferretman: Does anyone even view the 'partner links'?


No. There's not much point when there isn't a discussion thread. Even if half the thread is made up of Farkers complaining about the sponsored links, there's still some conversation available.

Back on subject. i must admit to being a bit surprised that it is possible to buy and transfer shares in the Colombian cocaine trade. I wonder if they issue stock certificates, perhaps in a small and easily rolled up form? If I call a stockbroker and ask about buying into cocaine, will I instead get the number of his source in Soho?

That is what I don't get.  The only time I've ever clicked on Plug links is after I've seen some positive comments in the thread from user accounts I recognize.  By turning off the comments they ensure I never look at them.

The desperation with which Buzzfeed spams their links has convinced their site sucks and I should never go there.  I mean if they were amusing or interesting, they'd go green on their own merit, right?
