    Please don't bring back this "feature". We have enjoyed its absence.

    Please no! All it does is spam the forum with clickbait links

    What is the feature being referred to?

    If it's the ability to click on a thumbnail to see an expanded view, yes bring it back. Viewing mostly on an Android phone makes it hard to see.

    If not this, what is it?

    No, this particular feature is a posting "bot" that looks through the internet for any articles that are Porsche related and post them here. The problem is it finds the same articles sourced in multiple places and doesnt know the difference, so the same article gets spammed all over the forums over and over, and the majority of the links are nothing but garbage, clickbait articles to begin with.

    Its terrible for guys like me who use the "new post" button, because the list will be full of these useless spambot post every day. I find it very ironic that the Admin on this site will ignore a multitude legitimate complaints about broken features that are actually needed for the site to operate correctly for a year or more before correcting them, yet somehow they are being pro active at testing this crap feature that no one is asking for or even noticed was missing in the first place??????

    +1, except I certainly noticed (and celebrated) that it has been missing.

    The board likely gets a fee for the click-throughs. There was certainly not enough filtering for relevance. As said - often click-bait.

    I had even added RSS_feed_bot to my ignore list. Alas, it still shows a place-holder for the message and/or thread

    Me as well and that was my point. Those that knew what it was mostly hasted it and found it annoying, and those that never noticed it in the first place never missed it, so who exactly is asking for this to come back? At the very least it should be an optional config for those who want it, but as of now there is no way to block or ignore the post

    Thank you for the reply. Now I remember seeing them before & I agree - very painful and I would agree with "Don't bring it back!"
