Yours: A Profitable Echo-Chamber?
So, let's envision an abuse of Yours with how facebook is currently abused.
Imagine you write a detailed facebook post explaining your latest frustration about a news item and how it was inaccurate, wrong, or just plain malicious. And you make $100 from people who agree and vote on your content. That sounds great, right? That's one of many possible ideas of the ways the platform of Yours can be used.
And you might be wondering about the possible abuses of Yours. Like, let's say that CNN employs someone to make 1,000 fake accounts to vote up their content -- entirely possible -- what's the downside of that fake spam? Well, voting gives Yours.org money. So, sure, for a time it would be up there, to the benefit of Yours. Let's suppose 100,000 users take the bait and vote the article up, falsely believing it to be true.
Actually, shit: how wouldn't this be an issue?
A profitable echo-chamber?
And isn't that technically a fair use of the site?
Aren't people entitled to believing bullshit and pushing it?
What's the downside here besides entrenched opinions echoing themselves? Is there really anything immoral or unethical about that?
