Well, I'd always assumed that "Perl News" was meant for actual news stories. The one time I added something here was an article from a network admin news feed that I figured everyone else might not have seen, since not everyone here is an admin, like me.
in reply to What exactly counts as "Perl News"?
That being said, though, I honestly don't see a big problem with the other stuff getting posted, too. Sure, there may be other places for it, even other places that are more appropriate, but as the traffic seems relatively light, I don't see the harm.
Of course, if enough people feel the way you do, I also don't see anything wrong with restricting it more, either.
