Subject Re: how to recommend users already consumed items

I’d suggest a command line option if you want to submit a patch. Most people will want that
line executed so the default should be the current behavior. But a large minority will want
it your way. 

And please do submit a patch with the Jira, it will make your life easier when new releases
come out you won’t have to manage a fork.

Juan, I don't understand your solution, if there are no ratings how can you
blend the recommendations from the system and the user's already read news.

Anyway, I think, as Pat does, the best way is to remove the mentioned line.
It should be the responsibility of the business logic to remove user's
items if needed.

I will also create a Jira issue as you suggested.
