MoD RSS 'Press Releases'

#1
Why are we suddenly getting so-called press releases from MOD RSS that are little more than the random thoughts of low-grade ministers crafted into actual sentences and paragraphs by low-grade Civil servants? Why on earth are we giving this rubbish bandwidth?

It happened before - a problem with the gov.uk website feed IIRC.

I think it's part of the sites karmic balance. CC has been FOATHP repeatedly, resulting in a lack of lacklustre, so MoD RSS is filling the vacuity vacuum with vacuousness.

Please Mr Minister, I've been raising your profile by some nice press releases. Can I have a pay rise please?

It adds to the variety of the site in my opinion and at least some of it is of interest to those of us with military experience - unlike many of the threads which seem to consist of various individuals calling each other names or desperately trying to out-deprave each other.

If the MOD are paying to have their feed on here and hence subsidizing us, fair enough. If not, what the flying **** is it doing here?

If it annoys you just put the MoD_RSS on "ignore" or don't click on it.

But if RSS does too many Press releases it might stop those important threads like 'What day do I get paid this month' and 'My sockpuppet is harder than your socket puppet threads'

Result - they are the definition of a waste of bandwidth!

The RAF articles are far funnier than half of the ******* on here.
