News Feed Idea

Here’s an idea I had to curate my news feed.

Search all titles and lead paragraphs for the word ‘actually’ or [\d+] [things|ways] and give me a way to hide them, block the article or entire site, or compose a letter to their editor with a list of their offenses.

It seems like everyone is doing it these days with actually and listicles in my feed, but maybe there are just one or two offenders I could block to scrub for content quality.

However, maybe they’re doing me a favor by providing a ‘click bait’ metadata tag so I know to stay far away. Maybe they should keep doing it. What do you think?
