    Default Irrelevant spam in the news forum

    I've noticed there are individuals who like to spam the news. With irrelevant hyperbolic nonsense that is not really news. A good rule of thumb would be if you can't provide a link then is not news

    Can't provide a link, then it's not news? So if Adolph Hitler is killing all the Jews in Europe, we can't mention that here unless we have a link?

    If you want a more modern example, I'll give you one. I heard on the news, late in Obama's presidency, that Obama was threatening to withhold funds from schools that wouldn't force girls to shower with boys who wanted to be girls. I can think of few things sicker than this. The whole world should be made to know what Obama was trying to do. Are you suggesting that on this website, we keep quiet about news like this unless we can find a link?

    anyway, irrelevant spam indicates there is relevant spam

    must be relevant to someone

    But neither of you was satisfied with my Hitler example, so I assumed you wanted something more current.

    Hitler is history
    Not news.
    what I'm getting at here essentially is when people turn the news feed into their own personal blog then it ceases to be a news feed

    The intent of the OP was obvious. Why bringing in the typical BDF argumentative rhetoric in I'm not sure.
    Give me a new voice
    Give me a heart for repentance and make it stay
    Cause I've idolized my words
    It's all my fault
    But it's comfortable

    Because rules have unintended consequences.

    a no spamming rule would not be unreasonable.
    Maybe limit people to one or two posts per day

    Limit people to two posts a day? Do you mean limit people to one or two new threads a day? If you limited people to two posts a day, I think most of us would leave. I'd use up my two posts greeting people in the new members forum.

    I'm not sure it's wise to limit people to two new threads. The Lord wants to do his work here, so if you limit a person to two new threads, you also are telling the Lord he can only use people twice a day.

    Not really interested in seeing one member turn the news feed into their own personal blog.

    If someone is burying us with threads, that would be a problem. However, sometimes a person is troubled about something and needs more than two threads to get it out. I think one shouldn't be quick to create rules. I would attribute much of the success of this website to the freedom we have to express ourselves.
