Back in November 2013, 9News' Kyle Clark became a hero on Buzzfeed and Reddit for his rant about viewers sending the station so many photos of snowy patios and backyards instead of actually venturing beyond their doors.

Even though the station has just posted a cheeky list featuring a reference to being "publicly mocked on 9News" for snaps of outdoor furniture featuring this image....
