Scientology-related news from all over the Web

No items are thrown away, just organized for better viewing. Currently I've set the retention time to 30 days, might change.
Note the word filter at the top of the page too where you can include or !exclude items. Also there's a neat daily activity bar graph which you can also click on to go back in the archive.

Ray Hill is fine tuning his scientology news media gathering engine at http://www.xenu-directory.net/webnews.php and notes this today....
The amount of "news" items re. Suri Cruise in the media reached such a ridiculous level, I realized I needed to extend the filter functionality to enable filtering out items containing a particular term. So in the filter area, any term prefixed with "!" will not be displayed. Ex. "!suri" will prevent displaying all news items containing "suri" (when more than one term is supplied, there is an implicit "and" between all terms.) Force a refresh of your page if you wish to get this feature now.
Thanks Ray, this is a really useful tool.

After seeing ninemsn spamming madly Google news in the wake of the Xenophon story, I decided to add a relevancy score information for each feed, to get an idea of which is 'misbehaving' by failing to properly cleanup their feed. Force-refresh your page whoever uses this tool. As an example, as of now it says:

Feeds' relevancy scores for the selected period: Yahoo! News 88% – Google News 36% – Bing News 79%

Bad, baaad Google News..

Scientology now and then

A created a new page which integrate all the recent news (and old). It draws data from the newsfeed page (last 24-hour), but displays them along two other panes: the "on this date" pane, and the "on this day" pane:

http://www.xenu-directory.net/nowandthen.php

The page auto update every hour for the time being, I plan to add a selector to choose how often it updates. So normally you can keep the page open and it will refresh whenever there is something new in any of the pane.

I thought it could be useful to keep current while providing easy access to all the library items (unless you want to search for a particular term, in which case the old way is best: http://www.xenu-directory.net/news/)

The "on this date" pane default to the current month, but one can select any month of any year.

The "on this day" pane default to the current day of the current month, but there again one can select any day of any month. Useful if you are looking for a specific period or for an item for which you know the exact date.

These items from these two panes can be sent to your cart where you collate items for later read of to collect reference items for some particular use.

I plan to fine-tune as usual, I will drop notes here for any significant addition.

This is a great site, povmec. Well done! Your site is exactly what has been needed for news aggregation.

Thanks for taking the time for this. Do you have some type of programmed aggregation? I'd hate to think you need to spend hours per day on this.
