"Breaking" is intended for BREAKING ACTUAL NEWS.|
Examples of things that ARE breaking news:
If your "breaking news" happened more than 12-24 hours ago, you can rest assured that its neither breaking nor are you likely to be the first person to post it here IF it is on topic in the first place.
Additionally, partisan snipes of any sort, namecalling and other examples of boorish behavior in this area may result in your posts being bilged at my sole discretion.
If you are not judicious with your use of "Breaking", you will get restricted from posting in here and you may be banned from the forum entirely. Such restrictions will come without warning and they are permanent.
Why am I being a pain in the ass about this? Because "Breaking" is for breaking news, and a lot of people have it on RSS feed readers. When you post crap in here you pollute thousands of other people's computers.
That's unreasonable and its unfair.
There is now a forum for queries or reports of unusual price or volume movement in stocks, options, and currencies - THIS IS NOT IT! This is for BREAKING NEWS RELEASES.
Note that all BREAKING items are automatically moved to the "not so breaking" forum after 24 hours. You cannot START threads in there, but you can follow up to them if you have a silver or gold star.
READ THE TOS AVAILABLE IN THE FAQ LINK ABOVE BEFORE YOU POST, AND HONOR BOTH IT AND THIS PINNED TOPIC IN LETTER AND SPIRIT; IF YOU GO LOOKING FOR WHERE THE "LINE" IS YOU ARE ALMOST CERTAIN TO FIND YOURSELF ON THE WRONG SIDE OF IT.
