Should Duplicate News Posts be Moderated on ManageWP.org?Feb. 11, 2016
I'm wondering how valuable it is to have so many posts here from WPTavern that are merely news about another post. Often, the Tavern is reporting something that is reported elsewhere first. For example, right now there's two articles about the Underscores Components release, one that is the actual release announcement from ThemeShaper, and one from WPTavern linking to the ThemeShaper announcement.
But it's not just Tavern. If Torque reported it and WPMUDEV as well, would we then have 4 posts essentially about the same thing?
I know there's virtually no way to automate that kind of moderation, but I thought it was a question worth raising for this ever evolving and very valuable platform.
