Please get out of the "news" business!!
I think you should completely do away with the news side of your website. I don't want to see that **** when I'm logging in to try to check my email. Not to mention, you have the WORST writers possible. You can obviously do what you want, but I have started moving all my accounts to another provider because of your inability to focus on a topic. If you're pushing email, then push email. Not email, news, finance, etc.
