Calm down and stop being stubborn about this because you're not adding anything positive to the site with that kind of "my way or the high way attitude". Your tunneled vision makes you come off like an ass.
I won't bother because I'm not up to hear you cry about this....but seriously wasn't a serious issue. The News and Performance Threads keep the forum organized and thread topics don't get repeated and cluttered like in the past. Redundancy tarnishes a forum and made it's a burden to scroll through updated topics like this one. As stated before, we are janitors of the site. I've been on this site for a pretty long time to know how much of a problem it was having redundant topics that no one engaged conversation in or kept up to date with. Keep in my mind this was my idea way before I become mod and made it aware to Rady who thought it would help make the forum easier to navigate.
Take it easy.
