    Excellent reminder. I keep meaning to do this, but then forget about it as i'm pretty absent minded at times.

    Is there any way to put 'Guest' posters on ignore? My 'new content' list keeps getting cluttered up by certain 'Guest' posters and I'd much rather be able to place particular 'Guest' posters on ignore than have to constantly mark the whole 'TIA news and opinion' sub-forum as 'read'.

    Alternatively, is there any way that the articles can be of greater quality, lesser frequency and subject to some sort of editorial scrutiny before they are published?

    Unfortunately, there's no way to block an unregistered poster.

    *ahem*

    As to the other alternative, this is a question not for the forums, but for the main site, over which we have bugger all control. (At least the mods and admins don't)

    But I take it that it would be relatively straightforward to make it so that only registered users could post?

    The TIA News and Opinion forum is a feed directly from the main site, and is populated when a new article is posted there. It's automated.

    What articles do you feel haven't been "subject to some sort of editorial scrutiny before they are published"?

    Most of the articles by Jack Lusby - extremely tabloid, sensationalist headlines that the content doesn't support, inaccuracies, claims that are simply wrong or misleading.

    Joseph Cousins writes some decent stuff though, haven't seen anything from him for a while? (Could have missed something though!)

    Would appreciate specific examples on Jack's, especially inaccuracies?

    Joseph Cousins hasn't written for us for about 3 years.

    Honestly, that's laughable. Cheers for the feedback though.

    You're welcome although I can see why you would think my points aren't justified.
