Should I make a subreddit for merveilles-adjacent people to curate aliexpress (and amazon?)

We generally have better taste (both for usability and aesthetic) than its recommender algorithm, so I think it would be useful


It feels kinda dirty though cause these marketplaces are not transparent at all, 2/3 aliexpress sellers will lie about at least one feature of the product, and there will be no environmental or labor condition audits to be seen anywhere.

But for a lot of stuff I don't think there's really an alternative. A lot of the physical stores you'll go to buy their stuff from aliexpress and so are just as bad and even less transparent and are also ripping you off.
