If I was offering get-rich-quick courses, I would advertise them here. They would be AI-generated, just like everybody else's these days--because they would tell you how to make AI-generated, get-rich-quick courses. So why not skip all that and just give me the money. That way I can give it back in exchange for upvote.
These notices that put a delay on sharing have a subtle effect of self-censorship. They bring everyone into the fold of slanted journalism, whether they are aware of it or not. There is a veiled threat that we might ban your account if you share this. It makes people self-censor.
These nags are not only annoying, they are dangerous self-censorship training camps.
“If you want the truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against. The struggle between ‘for’ and ‘against’ is the mind’s worst disease.” — Jianzhi Sengchan
