"News" item

Is the news section no longer moderated? this in no way even comes close to meeting the content and form guidelines.

Thanks David. Unpublished it.

We switched to not moderating content by default a while ago - it's a lot easier to swat down posts like this (assuming we spot it / someone points it out) than it is to manually approve everything that's posted - and it means proper news articles don't have to wait for an admin to show up.
