Hey I am a mod on /v/news. Whenever I see people start to complain about old articles, I go through the whole front page and all the articles are recent. Can you show me some recent examples?

Hey, a mod from news, quick question, why all the politics in your sub? Where is all the actual news, all I keep reading is punditry.

Not much I can do about it. People don't want content specific removals

Saw this /v/news-as-a-dumping-place happening and started /v/usnews to try to organize geographically along the lines of /v/worldnews, and then /v/goodnews came along and it looked like maybe things could improve, but it's never been particularly organized for the past 6 months. That's not the fault of the mods, that should be handled by the posters who need to be more thoughtful about where they are submitting something. With the waves of redditors and craze for SCP and CCP, submitting to /v/news brought much bigger points than posting to small subs. Lack of discipline in favor of points among voaters combined with not wanting mods to remove posts as mentioned by ForksandGuys below and /v/news is pretty wild west.
