Please auto-hide content

Imagine if you came to my blog and it would load all unread articles. New readers would get a list of 1000+ posts. You would then need to hide each post, one by one.

It would be annoying, wouldn’t it?

Likewise, I am seriously getting annoyed at email and RSS clients. I need a very simple function: if I have not read an email or a RSS post in x days, please take it off from my inbox. Move it into an auto-archive box.

I find it stressful to see all these emails waiting for me! Yes, I know about Inbox Zero, but I get so many emails that just archiving them manually takes too long!

  1. Strange; I find I have the opposite problem. I would prefer unread posts to be marked as such forever, but Google reader marks them read after 30 days.

Your email address will not be published. The comment form expects plain text. If you need to format your text, you can use HTML elements such strong, blockquote, cite, code and em. For formatting code as HTML automatically, I recommend tohtml.com.
