usually lack research effort and are usually low quality articles.

Yeah, I think we all know of the 'kind of articles' the OP was talking about, and I can see how people might judge them of having low research effort. To be honest, I also grow tired of seeing them too :P

One problem is see is this:
I think it's hard to judge what is low quality or not. We can see people trying up their following counts simply by pumping out 'low quality' articles. The community seems to accept them because they have high followers on twitter...

yet for the beginner with no followers, we judge that same kind of content as being a lower quality "list post".

What's the difference between the two then? Just my 2 cents.
