    In retrospect, could say that particular subreddit has problem of too little content of it's own and thus Phoronix simply swamped it.

    I find it convenient, I don't have to crawl through bunch of different sites/email subscriptions but get most news items from here. Yeah, I have some particular email subscriptions and some other forums I keep an eye on but it's much less than it would be without Phoronix.

    So, what's his destiny going to be?

    At least Phoronix benchs should be allowed (don't know if it's already the case) since they are 100% OC.

    About debianxfce, I've already said everything I think about him before. Some people simply can't live in communities, it's his loss not ours.

    So I guess I better cancel my newspaper subscription, don't want to get spammed.

    " Phoronix News is considered blog spam"

    News aggregators are considered spam now?
