If that tiny paragraph is all you're going to have then don't waste your time, it makes the entire site look like a joke. I guess it's partly because this is the only place I go for news which is why it affects and annoys me so much.
Removing news completely would do a disservice to people like you who come to GON for the news. The news is still there, it's just summarised more succinctly to get straight to the facts without the waffle and repackaging. If people are interested in the news, they can then follow it back to read it at the place that actually broke the news and thus treat the original site with the credit they deserve.

Yes, this is an issue with the CMS. The size tag appears differently in the forum to what it appears on the front page. In this case, we will have to live with it until we can come up with a solution, which we are working on now.

This is definitely the direction we're going, but for now our CMS is pretty much stuck as it is. Again, we'll fix it as soon as we can
