Due to ongoing maintenance of marking and removing old unread news items (over 11 MILLION) we have disabled News feed updates for the time being. Once the operation is finished we will re-enable it.
From 11.5MILLION news items only about 700 000 are read! If you do not intend to read stuff, do not subscribe to News (some of you are subscribed to as many as 8000 News feeds!). Think of others and think of resources you waste. Do not litter!
