I just checked with Mr. Google and Wickipedia for RSS. It is a method of importing articles into a Forum such as this.
I am personally opposed to adding RSS to our Forum because it would fill the site with meaningless, lengthy articles; whereas, I prefer to see specific answers to specific questions. In other words its not what you can look up to fill the space with bloviation but what you have experienced and can help someone else.

Default Yup

I'm thinkin if the folks who started this little endeavorer had wanted it, it would already be available.
Like I say, It is what it is. If it ain't, then get lookin for it.
See ya in the funny papers.

Not sure where you got this, but that's not correct. RSS is a way to get content from a site, regardless of what it is. You can then use an RSS reader to view content from all of the websites you frequent. That way, you could go to one website, and see your news, any new blog posts from your favorite blogs, and any new posts to this forum.

However, I don't believe RSS handles "conversation-style" content well. You'd basically just be getting all the new posts in random orders, rather than in threads of conversation. Not terribly useful for forums.

It would be a great idea to have RSS feed enabled, that way it would be easier to monitor threads and replies.

"Wickipedia" WOW, major spelling error ah?
