You can do a lot of things at Bill O'Reilly's Web site. You can listen to his rants. You can subscribe to the "Spin Stops Here" newsletter. You can buy "No Spin" jackets and hats and T-shirts. And someday soon, you'll be able to read Bill O'Reilly's blacklist.

After taking heat for his comments about a terrorist attack on San Francisco, O'Reilly is now vowing to publish the names of "guttersnipes" who have dared to criticize him on the Web. "I'm glad the smear sites made a big deal out of it," he said on his show last night. "Now we can all know who was with the anti-military internet crowd. Well post the names of all who support the smear merchants on So check with us."

We've been checking all morning -- Are we there? Are we there? -- but the blacklist isn't up yet. We'll keep looking. In our little corner of the Web, hope springs eternal.
