    Currently chatting with the other mods about this and while we don’t want the community to be overrun by Elon, the articles are some of the most upvoted in the past few days. It seems, that people do want to hear about what’s going on but not at a rate that drowns out other content. We’ve been careful to prune out duplicates to keep the flow down, but the volume of Elon posts and Twitter / X is definitely… a lot. I do see how some find it annoying so we’re keeping an eye on the situation, but I do agree it does meet the criteria of being both news and tech related. I assume that he’ll eventually run out of Twitter pieces to break, right :P

    Please do keep an open line of communication with us and all replies, feedback and opinions are always welcome! Cheers!

      It’s not just an inconvenience. I unfollowed the sub because the quality of the content was poor. I want to learn about technology, not social media companies and every minutiae about their employees bowel movements. I’m getting more value from Linux than from here, despite the fact some of it is more low level than I’d like.

      Great, and thank you for implication and consideration. This community, like any other needs some rules or guide lines. Yet, if people are interested in other topics, they can just subscribe to communities about those other topics.

      To be more precise, “technology” “technology news” and “news” are very different subjects that may have their own communities.

      I see the role of moderators as guiding the flow of people’s interests. If you went solely on upvotes, it wouldn’t matter what you called the community or whether it had moderators. If you want it to be about technology, make it that way. If you want it to be about the business decisions of social media companies tangentially related to technology, at least do the kindness of changing the name so that people don’t mistakenly come here thinking they’ll hear about new technology.

      I believe the upvotes mainly come from rage engagement. I don’t wanna see them either, but they provoke a reaction.
