They  will  always  welcome more (as more information =  more  choice  and
higher  saturation),  but it depends on their criteria for  quality.  They
accepted some bad sites in the recent past and suffered some embarrassment
(big  hoaxes) as a results. The sites to be added must have attained  some
credibility,  so  credentials  is  probably the key  criterion.  For  some
reason,  they  also include some blogs and security  advisories  nowadays.
Yahoo  News  is  /still/  many miles ahead, in my  humble  opinion.  Their
history make them more mature and predictable. However, they lack *this*:
