@Chris Muir – thanks for pointing out that problem with the tilde. I hoped that enclosing counter~ in quotes would solve the problem, but it doesn’t. The tilde used to be an operator that could be used in a google search to indicate that synonyms in results were okay. I wonder if that’s the reason why it’s ignored? Goog recently deprecated it, FWIW. But this is a pretty big gap in our search that I wasn’t aware of.

@zlp and @metamx – requests for RSS links noted. My bias is against encouraging RSS use because it’s a technology on the decline — ~50% down since 2008. (ref: http://blogs.forrester.com/reineke_reitsma/13-03-15-the_data_digest_usage_of_rss_feeds)

@vichug no news, which is not good news I know. thanks for your patience.
