50. This occurs on the Energy/Environment forum as well
Just a few people tend to post large numbers of news articles daily, sometimes in spurts of one every two or three minutes. I don't necessarily want to 'ignore' these folks, because they also chime in with intelligent responses on these and other threads. But shouldn't the main function of a "discussion board" be the discussion of issues, not to serve as a news ticker?
