I remember having the conversation, as well, and aside from the reason
listed above, I can't remember any against having a generic author. Are
there technical ones?

But that was before the cubes and idea of many, many people throwing tidbits
into one article. I think the community news may actually warrant the
addition of generic user account.

Another option would be changing the real person's credit to "editor"
instead of "author", but I like the idea of the monthly recap being posted
by ""
