I would like to propose that Destination Experts be required to identify their affiliations of benefits when there is a vested interest in the country/city that they are made DEs.
For example, in Tanzania, 2 of the 4 DEs are tour operators who can have financial gain from their comments. Though this becomes apparent after spending some time on the forum, it is not so to a new poster.
I know that I appreciate, and can better digest, information when a poster identifies their business as a signature. I think this would also be true for DEs.
