Hope the ******* got banned.
That's not the case, at all.

You can turn turn the Daily Zone into an RSS feed from the various news sites. vBulletin has that feature that will link the feed to a specific forum. It will literally post a snippet of the article for you with a link to the rest of the article. They would appear as threads as each item is posted on the news sites. It might be beneficial because it would post as the articles come up, rather than someone having to search for them. (WG might appreciate it.)
Most news sites actually provide an RSS feed now, so it wouldn't be that hard to set up. I'm not sure which version of vBul you're running, but I'm pretty sure most of them have now. I can show you how to set it up or even do it for you if you decide to go this route.
We're aware and was one of the things we researched while the Daily Zone was down. There were time constraints involved, so in order to get the Daily Zone back up, we're going this route.
We are open to ideas, like the one R2A proposed.
