    How many people get there news from hukd's rather than the news?

    Today I have seen the same news story posted at least 4 or 5 times !!
    Why do people come on here at 14:00 and think...."hmmm bet nobody has heard this breaking news" "i will start a thread telling the masses that its snowing"

    Rant over..move along now

    why do you feel the need to make a thread about it ? my advise ignore it job done

    Thread closed

    I've spammed a couple of "woolworths to be re-born" threads today....

    I don't mind reading news on here, happens a lot for me... lol... but it does get tiresome after a while when a thread is is right there in all its glory about 3 down on the main page... then someone else post's it too...

    Is it snowing really i must get out more.

    How can spamming a "New story" that has been placed 4 or 5 times in "the Misc"be against the rules? :thinking:

    Because that wasnt the question


    You really need to start reading things rather than just scanning the first line, you do this a lot :thinking:


    nowt wrong with spamming duplicate posts etc but thats not ACTUALLY what the OP has said so your actually encouraging them to break rules and risk infractions :thumbsup:


    EDIT: No hostility there btw, just stating a fact

    I'm not sure it is. I see mod's often say to spam duplicates.. Didn't think it was only deals.

    Having said that... am I due a spanking?

    :-D

    I kind-of do. It dawned on me a couple of days ago that unless someone brings a newspaper home with them or has BBC News on, I won't have any exposure to the news except through what people tell me IRL and what I read on forums. I've been alone in the house for three weeks. Anything interesting happened in the world?

    It must just be me then.
    I wake up...goto work
    check my email, the news, facebook, hukd's...Rinse and repeat lol

    There wasn't a question posed.

    My understanding after reading the OP was that he/she was unhappy with the amount of times a "News Story" was added to HUKD. Hence my reply.

    I try and not let such trivial things worry me as they say it takes all sorts to make a world:)

    There was:

    "Why do people come on here at 14:00 and think...."hmmm bet nobody has heard this breaking news" "i will start a thread telling the masses that its snowing"

    thats a question & a statement to me


    the first line was purely a statement to reinforce the point that news stories are posted

    no arguement here, I'm just saying ok! :thumbsup:

    The world is actually a great place, bad news sells papers, so you get a skewed view of the world.

    I agree

    GRANNY WINS £50 ON SCRATCHCARD AND BUYS LOCAL KIDS SOME SWEETS wouldnt exactly sell papers would it

    Sensationalism sells and the majority of the time things are taken and turned into something HUGE as they have no other news

    Have a look on Wiki re: 'Folk Devils' and the 'Mods & Rockers' case and you'll see how the media creates these social panics

    i get all my news from sky sports news...

    Just because i dont read the papers doesnt mean i dont live in the world, yes it may be a great place and a bed of roses if your wrapped in coton wool, but the reality is we do live in a world full of sickos, nasty people etc

    Not sure where you got the "real world", "bed of roses" and "cotton wool" from?

    The world is hardly full of sicko's and nasty people. I would guess they would number less than 1% of the population.

    Wow that sends out a statement!
    I'm going to correct you as you seem to be missing out the truth bit. Your reality seems to be different from mine, I seem to be swayed...

    towards the world being full of sicko's or on the whole people in general are pretty decent.

    I hate dilemmas!

    saint are you saying the bad news is made up?

    saint are you saying the bad news is made up?



    No, I am saying that good news doesn't make the news, as it doesn't sell.

    If I gave 3 people in the street £20, it wouldn't make the news, but if I robbed one person of a fiver, that would.

    Due to 24 hour news, and the internet, bad news spreads in minutes, seconds even. I was just speaking on my brother on MSN in Brazil, he was telling me about how the UK has come to a stand still due to the snow.

    The myth about children being taken/murdered is my particular bug-bear, as there are no more kids taken now, than when you or I were children.
    This may be due to mobile phones keeping them safe though.
