    Would it be possible to limit the number of times your allowed to post news a day?

    Away from civilization.
    If you're thinking of a certain "don't look before posting news/worthless news" person, that's what I was thinking, too.

    This thread is hilarious and should immediately be closed. Posting news is a contribution, who cares from what person they are coming from? Limiting number of times a user can post news is equal to limiting the number of time a user can contribute. That's retarded.

    Well apparently "he" has a fanboy that thinks he's the best News submitter on the temp. Read some of his earlier submissions, you'll see him.

    Posting a question is a contribution, who cares that you don't like the question. Limiting the questions that can be asked is equal to limiting the contribution people can make. That's 'retarded'.

    I don't think it should be limited, I just think that he should actually look before posting. Because a fair few of his topics have already been posted, or don't need their own thread.

    Okay, I'm not seeing many reasons to support this limitation, better arguments for not supporting it, and this thread is becoming a personal attack.

    I'll leave it open and see if anybody can present a legitimate reason for this limitation, but any more personal attacks will be removed.
