Is this my personal pet peeve or does this bug most people?

Posting in "NEWS" always implied to me that you HAD news not that you were looking for news. Then, if you really must post questions in the news category why not use a question mark in the title?

How many times have I see something with a title like News: "Release Date" only to check the article out which says "Does anyone know when it will be released?"

Is this laziness? Is there a language issue due to this being a worldwide site? Is the meaning unclear?

Need to go drink my tea now....

Chill. Life's too short to get worked up about it. Look at it this way. If someone answers the question about the release date...well then when someone clicks on it the answer will already be in the right forum. Those crazy posters are really looking out for us.

I don't know about most people, but for me this ranks up there with fake LOL's, top-posting, and emoticons on the annoyance scale.

Maybe I am just too caught up in hope that there is news only to find the crushing disappointment of anti-news. Probably I just need to get a little less worked up about games.
