What is the best way to disclose conflicts of interest on the web site?
For instance, if I am a developer of a software package, should I disclose that in every post I make mentioning the software package, or would it be better just to mention that in my profile?
I ask even though there's an FAQ section about it because there's a lot of potential for people to plug software packages as part of answering questions to this site, and I notice that people have handled listing affiliations in different ways: listing an affiliation with each post on their software, listing an affiliation on their profile, or listing no affiliation whatsoever.
Furthermore, if one of us notices that there is a conflict of interest that is NOT disclosed, what should we do about it? Should we flag it and comment?
