4: One is really pained to see such insignificant news being posted on this site. Have you run out of ideas or are you simply trying to give some semi-tabloids like TOI a run for their money. I think you people need to wake up and understand that there are other crap on-line tabloids and newspapers which cater to this segment. Could you focus focus on what is relevant and important..tech or social or business news. This is some unbelievable junk and at this rate you are no different from the others and are seemingly trying to get a piece of the so-called 'hot news'..SI, get a move over before people log out permanently from your site.
