IDEA: RSS News Reader With Filtering
« on: October 31, 2006, 09:12 PM »
Almost all of the freeware RSS readers/aggregators have no filtering functionality or use filters to combine and direct feeds.

The idea is a simple RSS reader whcih incorporates regexp based filtering.

That will prevent spam/offensive content from reaching you, and helps reducing duplicate.

I am currently using an email2rss and that is curretly filtered only on the header, since Forte Agent, as of this time, cannot filter on body content.

this is a very good idea; but it seems like there must be some rss reader that either has this or could add this if its open source.  not really cause for writing a new rss reader is it?  still a good idea. i seem to remember an rss like thing with reg ex pattern matching.. could have been a web service..
