NEWs, RECENT....? What's next? All this up-to-dateness - it makes me tired.
news to your right
The 'News' is just that.
Whereas 'Recent' is a selection of all the recent things added to the site be they reviews, interviews or the like which aren't really news at all.
Does that help, you pedantic twat?
If you need any help with the elbow/arse conundrum, give me a shout.
attempted to insert my elbow into anyone's arse; however, surely, news is, thus, according to your explanation, merely a subset of recent, and, therefore, is redundant if recent exists.
News is the plural of new. That is equivalent to news being recent.
My definition was as I stated:
The News = the news
Recent = Recent things added to the site that are not news in that sense, just reviews, features and interviews.
So theres the news and recent stuff.
Of course if it said 'recent news' I would probably agree with you.
But it doesn't.
Oh by the way, no matter how many ways you look at it my 'pedantic twat' comment is pretty much indisputable.
The "news" is things added to the site recently.
why is there newest under News and not recentest under Recent ?
