    Seems current events is old news going back several months and is just mish mash of old news. I was just looking and it has no real line to it. I suggest you delete or move the old new to a proper event.

    On slow news days, people resurrect them sometimes. Where would they get put? A forum called "Old News?"

    I would like a forum that says Israel. Not Palestine and Israel. Israel. A forum titled Israel would be a dream come true. Can we make that happen?

    Current Events' had very little actual news ever posted in it, mostly astro-turfing spam from wing nuts and assorted deviants.

    It's certainly getting that way, and that's true for message boards all over as well.

    This is the exact reason why the Breaking News section was designed.

    The Current Events section, any breaking news story quickly gets lost in the mix and then within a few hours just disappears off page one. The Breaking News section is designed so that won't happen, that a breaking news story stays valid and doesn't disappear down the rabbit hole.

    Most boards that have such forums will move the thread to an appropriate forum after a certain amount of time passes, usually a week or so; don't know if mods here have the manpower time to do so, though, but hopefully it flies. " Current Events' has pretty much turned into a waste of time to click on.
