I'm experiencing the same feelings, so I made a quick search and I found this article.

As a first small step, I think that thePracticalDev should stop to promote low quality articles on their twitter account.

The staff have enough experience to choose wisely what should be boosted and what doesn't deserve it and this could lead the community to have a better idea about how a well-written article should be done in order to be promoted.

Also I've noticed that most of the low qualities articles are <= 2 minutes to read, because they are often lacking in explanations, so they are short. Thus I'd like to have a filter to cut out all those short articles from my feed.

Maybe it won't solve all the problems but it could be a start.
