nope, this is exactly what a lot of people want. when you have a meeting  
or a broadcast every 2 weeks, you want to have a post for each of them, no  
clutter here. just put them in a group to remove them all at once (or make  
changes to them) and you are done (besie the sideffects i forget here ;) )
