Honestly, I agree. I believe from this point forward I'll officially be removing at least Express articles. They are absolutely completely worthless.

How would you modify the thread title to cull out the less desirable articles?

As it currently stands, everybody is pretty much performing within the guidelines of the thread title.

Millions of readers reading articles full of misinformation is fine? The Kodi name is mud already, articles like that will just add to the problem.

I agree with you, whilst people here might joke about the british tabloids and label them as worthless junk, millions of people read them every day & believe every word, whether people here like it or not.

I'm not sure how what you said applies to what I said. I'm tired of our forum providing free links to Express, so I'm going to start removing them. What does that have to do with millions of people reading misinformation being fine?

Probably adding "please, no clickbait" should do the job.

I should probably note that removing links to Express isn't some official forum policy. I just don't see the value in letting the Kodi forum act as an advertising route for that kind of utter BS, so I'm going to stop it now.

I'm sure the 4 clicks per month from the Kodi forum make little difference to a tabloid that's read by 1.5 million people. I assumed by supplying the story that it would highlight that articles are referring to software as a "TV streaming service" and somebody would try to do something about it.

Good move Nate!
No need to promote "click bait" or "fake news".

How many readers read these silly tabloids is totally useless information.

TCCalvin, this may surprise you, but the Kodi forums get read by over a million users every month. Links from here matter quite a bit for SEO purposes. For something as large as Express it may not matter THAT much, but I'm tired of contributing even the little we do. If you want to point out problematic links in the future, feel free to pm me, as I'm the guy who tends to contact papers for corrections.
