Here's a debate - should a freebie site be posting formula freebies?

If it were my site, I wouldn't post formula freebies b/c I know hoe formula promotions adversely impact BFing rates, and I wouldn't want to contribute to this process.

As to "the general you," think that the host of a freebies site should know about the effects of formula freebies, and I hope that this would lead them to the same choice, but I also know that not every host would have the same priorities as I do.

I think the difference is the effect the freebies have. I don't think sausage freebies would have an effect as far reaching as formula samples undermining bfing.

True, that is our bias. That's why I wouldn't put them on my hypothetical freebies site. And why I would hope (but not expect) others to do the same.

Do you think that those whose BF declined or ended partially or wholly due to FF, and freebie use tied in with that, would recognise that? Or if they did recognise it, would they admit it in a questionaire?
