    This is the new feature where we take tech news from Reuters / BBC and display in the Information Technology.

    Oops sorry, didn't realise.
    It just appeared the forum had been spammed by a bot; all the "useful" posts in "Todays topics" had been completely swamped by the news postings.
    As this isn't a news site or a news indexing site (and those of us that want such things are already into The Register and/or Slashdot), is this really a useful feature?

    As it was today we approved majority of them but then this BOT would not post unless approved by me and so if any news related to the industry ( Programming / Technology ) will only be approved.
