The Crud Cloud.

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, we’ve launched our tag cloud. What makes ours different is the tags being displayed are the ones being blocked by our users (actually, we show those being searched for as well as those being blocked). So, without further ado, we give you the Crud Cloud:

For those of you who are aware of regular expressions, you’ll be pleased to hear – and we’re mighty pleased to announce – regular expression support for your Feed Rinse filters. Here’s how it works, just add a leading and trailing slash to your filter term like this:

That will allow you to block anything [...]

Thanks for your patience.

Sorry for any inconvenience our server upgrade may have caused tonight.


We’ve had a few inquiries regarding boolean (”AND”/”OR”) searches. We do allow this, we simply approach it in a fashion that’s easier to view and modify.
You’ll notice a checkbox that reads “filter only if all criteria are met” at the bottom of each of your filters. Checking this creates a logical “AND” [...]

New feeds are special.

Today we made a slight update to Feed Rinse to help you find your new feeds in your overall list. Basically, if you add a new feed to your account, the feed will be marked as [new] the next time you log in to your account. This is especially nifty for heavy bookmarklet [...]

Feed Rinse launched on March 22nd and thanks to the blog community, it’s been a great ride so far. As Aaron mentioned earlier, we’ve already had a lot of signups with more being added all the time. We thought it made sense to call out a few of the bloggers who took the [...]

Strip tease.

We’ve been getting great user feedback on the product. Popular opinion seems to be that it’s very easy to use, and that makes us happy.
We did notice a post somewhere along the way from an author concerned that Feed Rinse may be a threat to his revenue opportunities (by allowing users to filter out [...]

Maximum filter increases.

We’ve increased the number of filters available to each account level. Free account members will notice the maximum number of filters going from 3 to 5. We want all users to get as much as they can out of Feed Rinse, and we think this will help.
Be on the look-out as well for [...]
