Any chance we could pull articles from the witty posters who post articles with a cited source of "Faux News"?

I am not objecting to articles from Fox Nwes, but rather posters who purposely modify the name to Faux News.

I nothing else, ban them for repeated use of a 10 year old joke.

The mods are clearly not paying too much attention. However, deliberately modifying the cited source of the article in the original posting is a clear violation of submission guidelines. Posting comments to an article that mock the president, including word-games with his name, are in bounds. But if one were to modify the president's name in a posted news headline, that would also violate the rules.

Newsville is not closely monitored, and those whose parents failed to teach them manners and have strong political opinions will behave immaturely.

Even if you said "Fox Nwes", that is still not accurate.
