The ‘Watch Your Mouth’ feature monitors the BBC’s ‘Have Your Say’ reader comment site and detects when comments get “censored.”

The “Revisionista” monitors news websites and detects when articles change. The versions are viewable and the changes are highlighted. It currently monitors a few key feeds from the BBC News website, The Guardian and The Independent.
