/. can by some margin not become a mouthpiece for anything but what the people commenting on it want. Yes, you can tack a propaganda story to the front page. But be prepared to have it shred to pieces before long.

And since people (at least the people I know&care about) read /. for the comments rather than the stories itself, any kind of astroturfing or propaganda usually backfires VERY badly VERY quickly.
