I use hnrss.org to follow Hacker News and stay up-to-date with the tech and developer community. I followed the /frontpage feed, so that my feed reader would collect all submissions that reach the front page of HN. However that’s a lot of stuff and it got too much for me. I then noticed that one is able to filter the feed to just include submissions with more than 50 points (https://hnrss.org/frontpage?points=50). That removed a lot of stuff and left me with only the top voted submissions.

I am still unsure whether I should remove Hacker News from my feed reader completely. I find myself spending way too much time reading comments. And most of the submissions don’t interest me at all.
