If you establish a trend of reading the nodes from authors you have read before, you will be excluding new posters who don't have as high a reputation with you. I try to read the questions and answers in Newest Nodes, and when there are too many responses to read them all, I read the ones which have code examples and explanations. I don't filter out the posts based on author. I am, however, more likely to believe the assertions of Saints over those of Initiates.

    As I mentioned in the post, this was for something in addition to newest nodes. I'm a great fan of it. However, because fo time, I often don't get a chance to go back to a root node I've read before to see if there is anything new. Thsi would be a help with it.

    However, since there doesn't seem to be anyone else interested, I think I'm just going to try a Perl solution on my own and share it with PM if/when it becomes presentable.
