Just my opinion here..

```
* Sometimes, there's critical information that either we, the distro, or perhaps even the local IT administrator of a fleet of systems needs to communicate to users at login. Think, "ShellShock", "Heartbleed", "StackClash". This seems to happen every few months, in the current state of the world.

* Other times, we need to communicate something about the distribution. EoL messages, new feature availability, etc.

^^^ Great use of motd-news

And sometimes, it's just a matter of presenting a fun fact.
```

^^^ Not a great use of motd-news

I wouldn't want to have to opt out of receiving critical information or EOL messages just to avoid receiving fun facts. Can we maybe split off the fun fact stuff into it's own motd-funfact script and have it disabled by default on the server image?
