I stopped visiting another site because it was being flooded with garbage by a robot.

Nice to see the EF going the same way...

Fixed now. The list has to be updated manually every time we rearrange forums.

Re: The Local's news articles in the forum

I hadn't noticed that this had appeared. Hopefully it will remain low key. If people do not respond to them, they will gradually disappear down the list.

Yet again, a change has been introduced without any advance notice, consultation or negotiation. I am sure that most of accept that The Local have commercial objectives to achieve. These will not be achieved if the forum loses members.

Re: The Local's news articles in the forum

There's so much pointless and useless crap posted on this forum every day that I find it impossible to get annoyed about the occasional automated current events post.

Ok, but can't we program the robot to post only new news?

Re: The Local's news articles in the forum

Even then, all of the posts seem to be confined to a subforum that very easily be avoided.

That is true. Just go to Control Panel - Edit Options - Miscellaneous Options - Forums To Exclude From View - Select 'Swiss news via The Local'
