anyone else fondly recall the good old days when all these minor update betas were just one article on MR instead of five? those were the days

You know how it works higher web traffic generates more income associated with some ad placement. But diffidently using one online article source to create 5 to 10 articles concerning every minor sub-topic is nuts at times. There are time I wonder where some more important news is on MacRumor, and then I find they created it hours ago and there are just that many recent minor articles that obscure that important topic. ;)

Regardless of the motivation I think it's better to have them in separate threads

Many people would only be interested in the macos betas , or only the ios betas etc. It gets too cluttered and confusing if they are all bunched together in 1 thread.
