In the span of a day, or little under/over that, there have been over a dozen questions about the newest web app on the block, trello.
The first handful were from users trying it out with fellow Web Apps users and maybe a Trello dev pitching answers.
But now we're seeing some of the newer questions being blatantly seeded from Trello's frequently asked questions. Even more that they're self-answers, questions asked only to be answered by the OP inside a few minutes.
It's no longer organic and instead feels like Trello has co-opted Web Apps as their own Stack Exchange. Without notice or a heads up. Is this a Flash mob like the R language on Stack Overflow we were not told about?
(In a slightly similar vein, Synergy was called out for dumping their support questions on Super User.)
Or is there some special case when the product is from Fog Creek, whose CEO and co-founder happens to be that Joel Spolsky you've seen here and there as the CEO and co-founder of Stack Exchange?
Is this forced seeding something we want?
