Should we let vendors pitch?

It has been SmallNetBuilder’s policy to not publish articles written by vendors. The reason is that most vendor-supplied articles are basically advertising in a different format.

But sometimes the articles really are informative, even though they carry a built-in bias toward the author’s company’s product. So I’m thinking of trying this out.

These articles will have the author’s company affiliation clearly identified and carry a short disclaimer so that readers will know that the views expressed are the vendor’s and not SmallNetBuilder’s.

So what do you think? Should we let companies contribute articles? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Thanks!
