Echo the Blog to posts to an account on Furry Network called "Furry Network Updates" and have new profiles automatically following it. Let them unfollow if they want.
This is being implemented as an "announcements" category on the feed page - users can disable them by clicking on the filter type for it, and clear them out / delete them like any other post. We're intending to have them 'on' by default, and they'll be tailored to show up as short and sweet articles similar to 'posts', linking to more in-depth resources as necessary.
I have to thumbs-down this one. If there's one thing that drives me (and many users) nuts, it's automatically being opted into something like that. I'm not so sure having the posts themselves echoed into site-side posts would be good, either. Maybe if they linked to the posts as announcements, I could understand it, but not in the manner suggested.
