Lightbulb Wtf is this and wtf is RSSRobot?

We are using this forum to collect and display newsfeeds. The user RSSRobot is a simple alias for a cron job, that periodically checks RSS news sources (meatloaf.net only for the time being). If a new item is found, RSSRobot starts a new thread and posts the collected item. This new thread pops up in your unread/new post list, giving you
  • the chance to actually realise that there is a new news item at the news source and
  • the ability to disuss this news item here for a limited time.
If you don't like a particular news item, please don't shoot the messenger, he doesn't care anyway.

Hope this clears things up a little bit, if not read on.
