Absolutely! And, if anyone doesn’t like it, they can send me email and I’ll remove them from my feeds.
But my email lately has been much different. Turns out that these blogs are getting hundreds, and even thousands, of visits from my link blog.
Whoa? The full content is over there, so why would anyone click through to read the full blog?
Well, for one, I’m not printing everything that, say, TechCrunch puts up. So, if you are a new reader and are following my link blog you’ll probably want to click through to good posts to subscribe to the full feed yourself.
Second, if there are comments, or you want to comment on a post, you’ve gotta visit the full thing.
Anyway, what are the rules? Most people who use RSS know that they are giving permission for their feeds to be used in a non-commercial way. My link blog doesn’t have ads on it so fits inside the model of a non-commercial use.
I TOTALLY disagree with Andy that RSS was designed to be private. That’s TOTALLY FALSE. Ever since I can remember RSS is about PUBLIC uses of syndication technology.
