On the one hand: I sympathize with the multitude of internet users who are are terribly bored. They simply need to do something ... even if it's just posting a signature update for a virus scanner. And I certainly do feel compassion for these people. On the other hand: Nobody is interested in such update alerts (aka "spam") because every AV/AT scanner has an autoupdate feature. If people do not use this feature they will certainly not follow the update alerts in this subforum. Even worse, people who are really interested in important software updates (e.g., the release of a completely new version with new features or an important bug fix) will not find them anymore since they would need to dig thru gazillions of useless signature update alerts. This is so completely annoying that I recommend to specifically prohibit any signature update alerts (or to put them into a separate forum where they do not hurt anyone).
