    Volume of news posts

    The news forum is getting dozens of news posts per minute that seem maybe keyword-based. It would be easier to hold a discussion if the thread didn't get swept off the page pretty much immediately? Like a dozen random news post a day rather than a minute, maybe? Just a thought.
