Alright, I think it's clear that the posting frequency of this bot is an issue. I'm going to be taking steps to make this better, thanks for your patience!

so! the poll:

Do you think this bot posts too much?

Hello everyone! newsbot author here. We've recently gotten a (very valid) comment that this bot posts too often. I'd really like to fix this, so I have a poll (next post in the thread!) that I'd appreciate if you voted in and/or boosted. Right now this bot runs once per minute, and if it finds enough stories in it's queue, posts 3 of them. This means that, theoretically, it could post 180 stories per hour, though in reality it usually only posts 10-20 per hour
