I know that this is potentially controversial, but I think this needs to be addressed.
There are a number of affiliate links within recent tutorials. It's understandable, in this day and age affiliate marketing, link building, tiered recommendation ponzi schemes are a part of many people's income, but I think it's totally inappropriate for a site like this.
I consider them bad, for a number of reasons, and I see them as spam. I know the ad world thrives on them, but I propose the following:
If any 3rd party services are recommended or mentioned within tutorials, the links have to be clean. No affiliate IDs.
Is this just me?
