Why? Really Simple Syndication has hundreds of uses since its inception back around '97.

Most syndicated news feeds use it and they pay for the bandwidth. For some commercial webs it is a good way to increase traffic, and it has many other uses.

RSS serves as a good means for exchanging data between sites also in addition to the various news feeds such as CNET, BBC, CNN, and a host of others who use it.

What if I said publishing and printing the morning paper was a huge waste of paper and it kills trees?

Now let me put my beer down and read the newspaper.

Actually, we don't have the feeds for the forums, just for the main site.

You'd be absolutely right, not counting the ads for computer stuff in the sunday paper. :D
