My idea to fix this issue.
A better idea to fix this issue! Bravo Sampan! Bravo!
I would absolutely agree that the ability to access high quality, hard-to-get information on certain subject matters is a vital part of SDF. What I question, however, is the value in a barrage of news articles that can be easily accessed from Google News.
There's nothing wrong with posting an interesting article from Google now and then, but when someone makes such posts on every thread and does so every hour (or so it seems), then wouldn't you agree that it becomes clutter the forum can do without?
Now I read. LOL Sarcasm
Just making a point on why this is annoying.
You hit the nail on the head. A news article without that "LOL" and/or sarcasm is much easier to take. In the end, LOL and sarcasm only indicate an attitude without actually saying anything about the issue. It is one way of "throwing the stone while hiding the hand".
I still think the best way to avoid this is to insist that people follow the existing rule: a comment/direct opinion with every article posted.
But yes, if someone posts something I otherwise would not find, or that would not otherwise make it to this forum, I'm willing to overlook an uncommented article, translation, rumor, or whatever.
So when are we going to get a thread inside each section (Army, navy, air) labeled "News and newsworthy photos"? So then all the discussions about separate weapon systems and geostrategical changes can be left alone in their respective threads? That way both the people who go to forum to participate in the discussions and the people going to forum to look for news can be (mostly) happy.
There is an existing forum rule against posting useless one-liners. I think this rule should extend to copy/pasting google'd articles without any other comment.
At the very least, when you paste an article, explain why this article is relevant to the topic and worthy of attention!
