many MOOs I've seen use that kind of $news system, where $news is a
container and holds $news_item (or $news_article). However, this is not the
$news that comes with LambdaCore.

By the way, most of the "bugs" in the newer db come from people downloading
that core and version 1.8.0p5 of the server; the Dec95 db was still intended
for 1.7.9p2 and needs to be modified, so do older MOO's who do the upgrade.
The Oct94 database, while still available, has lots of security holes on there.

P.S. I think excess BS is cute.
