GeneralSite-driving article - please check before just reporting Pin

This article How to stop wasting engineering time on technical debt[^] contains several links - many are perfectly valid references but several are to a blog on the company website.

It's actually an interesting article but is too site-driving for me which is why I've reported it as spam but I'm not reporting the joined-yesterday member...yet

*****************************************************************************
EDIT - Please see the response from OG below
Having looked at it again, I agree with OG that it should be a blog, in which case the links would be fine (in this case).
