Deleting posts about Warcraft has apparently become part of my daily routine. And since I am neither patient, nor interested in Warcraft or its inner teachings, I’m not enthusiastic about it.
And yet, I continue to subscribe to news aggregators and avoid using the word “spam” as I download each new flood of posts loosely related to the original topics I subscribed to.
Now that my honeymoon with RSS is over, I can call it what it is: flawed. It’s not broken, just unruly. And unruly is easy to correct. A new app will be hitting primetime later this month to do just that.
Feed Rinse is an RSS filter that allows users to set up rules similar to a spam filter. The app has an impressive feature list including optional profanity filtering and OPML import/export. A free service will be available when the application goes live later this month. Find out more about RSS filtering at the site.
