I think I have cracked the code to determine what really is "good news"... (this post is a bit tongue in cheek).

If a site says they have "Good News!", its good news for them, but not for you.

If a site has "Great News!", then it really is good news for you.

Just received a payment notifcation from shutterstock, telling me they had "Great News!". And it really was great, I am going to get paid. :D So that really is good news!

Code: [Select]
Great news!

Your latest payment has been calculated and will be paid out later this month.

Total Payment: ----- (To be paid by 2019-05-15)

Having no information means that bad developments are unlikely, as in I haven't heard from them in a month, but no news is good news . This proverbial phrase may have originated with King James I of England, who allegedly said No news is better than evil news (1616).

Of course agencies have a way of making evil news into Good News.  ;)

I'll buy the great news theory until something happens to change it.

Lol - so its official - when reading an e-mail from an agency - we need to see if they say "GREAT news" or "GOOD news" to determine if it really IS good news for you, the contributor. Here here!

You missed one point: news can also been exciting.
Generally it means that it is extremely bad for us

To me Exciting news is sugar coated, trying to cover up, anything they are telling us that's worse than Good news. Right, Exciting news is even worse than Good news.

For me everything is a valuable lesson. Still learning in my 46 years I guess...

Still a newbie here, but I like to embrace and use everything I learn. Not only in stock.

Now my wife and co-workers really worry whenever I smile and say "Hey I got some good news for you!"
And this is a good thing because this, worked the opposite way for the years past :D

hehehe!
