A Pay-To-Read Forum Post!

What? The? Hell?!

The forum post — in China, and I won’t link to it — purports to solve an ongoing yet inconsistent problem with charging the Chuwi V88s.

And the guy wants to be paid for it?

That’s absolutely not what forums are supposed to be about. Injecting a commercial transaction into what’s supposed to a social space is just disgusting.

I don’t know what he’s being “paid” in — but even if it’s just forum “credits,” the very idea is repulsive.

Stop this. Stop it now. Before it spreads.
