You guys are being a bit harsh. Jazz/Genie isn't nearly as bad as some that have come & gone on this board. Here's a suggestion Jazz/Genie, lay off the starting of new threads that are nothing but news links for a while. Actually, lay off linking completely for a while and just participate in discussions with your own thoughts and opinions. Let us get to know you through your own thoughts and opinions free of the unnecessary news links and perhaps some of the attitude directed towards you will change.
Most on this forum are fairly news savvy and visit the sites you link so we don't need to be made aware of the articles you link (the exception being obscure news sources and breaking news). Instead of trying to inform us try starting discussions of the topics that interest you with your opinions. Personally, I don't want to see you banned, I just want you to lay off news spam links. This is just my opinion, so take it for what it's worth.
