    The lack of ads makes me feel like I'm pirating my favorite websites.

      They should consider not serving RSS then.
      This also applies to anything that "suffers" from piracy.

    Because it's shit, if I need slop I can visit a website I care about and look at the slop directly without going through some troony RSS client as a roundabout.

    Atom is better
    What’s a good client for Windows? On macOS, NetNewsWire is probably all you need.

      format last N amount of posts in RSS format you dipshit, there's no need to ping, RSS clients will anally rape your website by pinging the rss endpoint 100000 times per second waiting for new slop to consume instead

        yeah you have to set last-modified header and most clients will only send a HEAD request first to check if it's updated. So it can be very minimal overhead.

        Basically that. But do Atom instead
        Feed aggregators like Feedbin will get your feed once for all its subscribers and then let you know how many people subscribe to your feed in the User-Agent string
        Also look at

        and make sure stuff like that is set up. Also: ETags

          I found out if you set last-modified and etag, etag takes precedence and the browser should send ONLY if-none-match. But in most cases it's faster to check modified date than to generate the etag, so I just stick with last-modified and that works.

    I have installed and configured an RSS client. I just don't know what to use it for since google obfuscates all good contents from the internet.

      Visit some of your favorite blogs
      Paste the blog URL into the feed reader and the reader should read the page and figure out a good feed to use
      If that doesn’t work, look for a thing like <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" …> in the page head and paste its URL into a new-feed dialog box

      You go to websites with topics that you care about and add them to the rss reader. This place really is just all brainlets huh

        Google only allows me to see reddit, twitter and woke news sites. I even have to brute force it to get to a wikipedia page these days

    I have been using RSS for years
    >Can read all your favorite blogs, news sites etc.
    And that's why most people don't use it. There have been studies done on online readers and it found that mots people don't read. They scan to headings and words in bold to to give them the gist on what their opinion should be on the topic and then they move on

    I'm using it to read the news, a few blogs, comics. It's handy. I'm using Miniflux on the server and Newsflash and News (from F-Droid) on phone
