comment What is the difference between the words “stream”, “flow” etc.?
Ok, I meant "discrete objects constantly appearing on one side, moving to other and disappearing there". News or blog post is just an example of such objects. What is proper word to describe this movement the best (with or without metaphor)?

In my native language (Russian) there is a single word for stream, flow, gush and it can be used to describe discrete object constantly appearing on one side, moving to other and disappearing there, including news items on the site. That's why I don't take it as metaphor.

@MattЭллен Based on your comments I see that “pour” at lest is not widely used in this context, so I've excluded it from the list.

@MattЭллен I admit it's so. But dictionaries clearly state “stream” as synonym to “pour” in section marked “noun”. Is it a mistake in Webster (see link above to verify this) and other dictionaries? What is a more authoritative dictionary to verify such things?

@MattЭллен According to Webster and other dictionaries I used “pour” can be used as noun and is a synonym of “stream”: merriam-webster.com/dictionary/pour
