Doesn't matter. If the important messages aren't posted or you have to
extract them yourself the effect is the same.
Besides that, I see no arguments why users don't. No proof either.
Forcing a push-based method on someone who likes pull-based methods is
evil. The least you can do to make everybody happy, is allow pull-based
access to the important news items, and devote some more words on how to
disable your 'feature'.
