News Postings in threads/topics

Continuous news postings on different threads are turning them into RSS news ribons. After discussion with the other moderators here is what has been decided:

1. News without poster's comments will be deleted.

2. Comments such as "Hey guys good news ... we are buying this ... doing that ... its going to be great ... check it out ... etc ..." do not contribute anything to discussion, hence they will no longer be counted as 'contributory comments' & such post will be deleted.

3. Full news is no longer allowed. Just post the 1st paragraph & the link of the source. Full news post will be deleted.

Failure to comply with above follow the same punishment as before = 3 warnings & a week's ban. In addition the thread will also be locked.
