    Let me see if I understand this. When new people visit USMB they can read anything they want except the Taunting area stuff. You think Breaking News will be a major draw. Seems to me people visit forums to talk after reading breaking news somewhere else. Adding a Breaking News section will just be another place to post politics and current events.

    I'm not clear on why you guys think the OP section is supposed to draw crowds- maybe it could be moved further down the page. Put whatever the most popular/active forum is on the top.

    Why not just have tweeters here tweet interesting threads? Kinda hard to discuss hot topics over there with minimal characters in each "reply" or "comment".

    I've been tweeting links from your thingybob on the top of each thread and it may have helped in getting some new folks in here, but they won't stay if the Intro Thread keeps getting derailed with insults. Staff needs to keep on top of that cuz it happens a lot.

    Unless it's from the NYT's, then the cabbie is more reliable.
