      There’s a reason most of the regular posters on reddit and (probably lemmy too? it isn’t hard to automate these things) are likely run by marketing agencies. Post relevant posts 90% of the time, comment occasionally, and then sneak in a post or ad disguised as an article rest of the time.

      All run by virtual assistant in some third world countries for that human touch.
