Or maybe it's a legitimate problem that needs to be addressed. A border
that marks the contents as an advertisement would definitely help; have
you seen the ad yourself? Stefan K√ľng keeps saying that he hasn't,
because it's apparently not shown in his area. Someone posted a
screenshot to the though--it definitely is not clear at all that it's an
ad. Stop trying to dismiss the problem and claim that it's just one
person astroturfing. The workaround is simple and easy to implement.
Stefan always brings up the strawman argument about the impossibility of
blocking "bad ads", but the workaround is to put the border around *all*
ads.
