Thanks so much for the thoughtful response! You make a lot of great points — that youporn example actually really drove home the idea and made a lot of sense to me.
As you say, “bad” is subjective and depends on your metrics. Which makes me wonder — why is there so much supply? I feel like in some cases there is more supply than there is demand (which you could prove by showing how people actually pay money via ads for people to read/see their content).
