Would DN be better as 'invite-only' again?

    As someone who has only recently joined, I would hope you'd keep it open - with limitations (SO's model doesn't bother me, and I'm on other boards with similar reputation-based permissions). My background is programming, not UX, so I look to resources like DN for good, solid information. If you close DN to others like myself, you cut us off from the opportunity of learning, and the of the possibility that we can, at some point, contribute of our own strengths. And, by the way, I do have a business, and a product - but I'm not here to push it at you. You won't get spam from me.

      You are actually allowed to self-promote, by all means! The only issue would be if that's the only thing you did. If you weren't seen to contribute to the community, then it would be deemed spam.

      But clearly you are contributing by posting a comment on this thread ;)
