    In the last month and a half, there have been 7 threads created in the GARM purporting to be Rockets articles from Yahoo Sports.

    [Yahoo] Asik rightfully available and wanted

    (YAHOO) Step Aside, Kobe Bryant: Houston Rockets' James Harden Is the Best Shooting Guard

    [horrible yahoo article]Most Despised Houston Rocket Ever

    Harden is better than Melo (Yahoo)

    [Yahoo! Sports] Emergence of Patrick Beverley

    With experienced columnists like Adrian Wojnorowski, Marc Spears, and Kelly Dwyer, Yahoo is a respected brand for NBA coverage so most of us will enthusiastically click on these links. The problem is that each and every one of these last 7 threads has been from Yahoo Contributor Network (YCN), and specifically from one fan who apparently has a lot to say about the Rockets and is digging the platform that YCN gives him.

    Now, I don't have a problem with a separate thread being created for each of these articles, so long as the title is clearly tagged as Yahoo Contributor Network. Considering that 100% of the time this has not happened, I'm proposing this thread to be used exclusively for these articles. I'm hoping a moderator will be kind enough to merge any threads not explicitly marked as Yahoo Contributor Network into this thread (or simply lock them, as they please).

    If I never read a YCN article again it'll be too soon.
