I don’t know what the holdup is, but it doesn’t matter to me now. Thanks to etc., I just found Yoktu.com Feedmaker. A moment later, I had the feed I want. Sweet!
One note: Feedmaker has a Word Filter option. Unfortunately it doesn’t do positive filters, so “?” hides all the links I want, instead of the generic ones I don’t. No big deal (I’ll choke doen the extras), but hey Yoktu, how about a googlish syntax like “+?” for specifying what to include?
