We’ve come to the decision, both as the community team and with discussion amongst the Coral Crew, that we’re not comfortable with the level of link referral spam happening around this company. We’ve seen a lot of signups of people posting their links and leaving, and it’s starting to creep into other unrelated threads too. It feels very spammy, and it’s not a good look in our opinion. As such, we’ve closed the existing thread.
This isn’t a comment from Monzo as one company making a judgement call on another business, as that isn’t our place. But we do feel that, whilst we appreciate people sharing referral links and recommendations around existing products in order to get discounts etc, there’s a difference between that and people posting endless links for a largely-unknown product that may or may not turn out to be something tangible in the future.
It’s important that we both keep this community tidy, and we protect our users. The level of link spam combined with the lack of information, and the apparent focus on them attempting to gain users before actually building or releasing a product, isn’t something we feel is appropriate for our community. As such, these referral links will be removed.
