I have added "no institutional accounts" to our Community Standards, because periodically an organization or a school or something tries to set up shop on Scholar, and they invariably spam the Local Timeline with nothing but links back to their Twitter account

If you are a member on Scholar and you have a compelling reason why this is a bad policy, I'm legitimately open to discussion

:NoAt: If you are not a member of Scholar, please do not interact, thanks


Maybe a refinement, to disallow hyperlinks to the proprietary networks as a condition for such institutional accounts, except to the institutional web site only?
To encourage participation in the fediverse, perhaps also an additional requirement that the institutional web site must also have a prominent hyperlink back to 'scholar', or to disperse, to the 'fediverse.party'.
