Can we have a google news search for "metafilter"? October 3, 2003 1:39 PM   Subscribe

My Little Pony: In addition (or instead of) Blogroots, an RSS feed to a google news search for "metafilter" in the MetaTalk sidebar. Not all big-media shoutouts require discussion, but it's still cool to know about them: and why go through all the trouble of typing when a robot can do this for you?

I don't understand the backlash against links mentioning MetaFilter appearances in the mainstream press. We used to eat that stuff up like hillbilly Heroin.

I didn't spit anything on my monitor, keyboard, or anything else in the immediate vicinity, and I did not roll about on the floor laughing, but I did give a short bark of laughter at each of the last two posts.

This play-by-play was brough to you in the interest of not being a cliche

Personally I think MetaFilter is an overrated website and gets the amount of media mentions it does because Matt Haughey is unusually tall. And we all know what being tall means in this short person's world. I expect many of the PPC clickthroughs the site gets are from guilt-riddent liberals trying to remedy a wrong that no longer exists. But that's just my opinion.

It's probably against some AdSense guidelines.

"Regarded as heresy when we raised the issue last spring, now some of Google's warmest admirers, MetaFilter's Matt Haughey and web designer Jason Kottke have acknowledged the problem."

I'll eat up any news about MeFi, but that dangling modifier just makes my head implode & explode at the same time.
