This is definitely the right line of thinking. I think for the typical behavior to work one expects from this, we'd need to make that behavior pattern of sharing links part of the site to begin with. I'm not uniformly opposed to this, but it's not a direction we'd go lightly because the benefits of crossposting to the site are big for the end user experience.
We'd like to make it easier to share more casually if it could be beneficial. Like if you want to tell people about a GitHub repo they should check out, you don't need a lengthy blog post, a quick. Hey, check this out. May suffice, and buttonizing it on GitHub (through a browser extension, unless they cooperated on the implementation, which is unlikely) makes sense.
Thanks for the feedback. I really enjoy these sorts of discussions.
Okay, thanks Bobby for making clear what I was trying to say! :+1:
In fact, what I was thinking was Bobby's first option.
So, I was wondering if there is a tag to specifically say it's a post linking to a resource (the kind of post Ben described). I mean a tag that act like the discuss on (I'm not sure there's anything really special, but the facts that it shows up in the title kind of makes "official"). I was thinking of something like resource.
