A couple websites are taking my RSS feed, placing it on their website with their own ads, and of course doing this without permission. This isn't necessarily a bad thing (backlinks, right), but it sure as heck isn't welcome. I want to send the webmaster a very clear message - taking my stuff without asking is wrong. [more inside]

I run a tumblr blog. Every day I post a Lego-related photo or video, mostly culled from Flickr. To facilitate this, I have subscribed to the RSS feed for the "lego" tag, so that I get in my feed reader every image tagged with "lego". This is a lot of images; it's not unusual for me to go through over 500 images a day. [more inside]

I like reading some people's Twitter feeds, but I don't want to join Twitter. I used to be able to subscribe to individual Twitter feeds via RSS, but Twitter doesn't support direct RSS feeds any more. They recommend "using a 3rd party service." What does this mean? And how can I, a somewhat technologically clueless individual, read individual Twitter feeds on my Google homepage?

Blog Help Filter: I am looking for a way by which I can have an RSS feed (consolidated from various sources and filtered - using Yahoo pipes) end up into a blog as draft posts. I would then edit, delete, modify these entires and post them in real time or at a predefined time. I am open to most blogging platforms such as: 1. Tumblr 2. Posterous 3. Blogger 4. Wordpress Does something like this exist for those of us who cannot program? And, is there a way to do this with twitter? I know I can post on twitter when I update a blog but is the reverse possible? I know it is a weird request. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

I was looking at the webpage for a sci-fi webcomic called Drive, and I noticed that the web designer had included a modified version of the RSS icon that meshed very nicely with the feel of the webpage. I was wondering if anyone else had noticed any other websites that had similarly jazzed up (or down, I guess) the RSS icon to better fit their page. To be clear, I'm not just looking for fancy versions of the icon (Google image search turns up hundreds of those), but instances of altered icons being used well in actual webpages. [more inside]
I plan to do a daily photo blog on a site such as Tumblr or Flickr. I'd like automatic updates posted to my Facebook profile on a weekly basis, instead of every time I upload a new photo. Is there a way to automate this? I'm guessing it will involve RSS. Totally willing to use a 3rd party app/widget/site.

I'd like to have an RSS feed for Bloomberg News, specifically for their environment reporting, that I can put into Google Reader. The problem is, Bloomberg News discontinued RSS feeds in 2006. None of the workarounds I've found are satisfactory: This one, for example, tries to use Google News, but it wouldn't really work for my purposes. (Using
"environment" site:bloomberg.comas my search string wouldn't necessarily return all news items related to the environment -- a story just about renewable energy, for example, not its environmental benefits, wouldn't show up at all.) There's also Feedity, but they want you to pay to have feeds with any sort of functionality, which I'd rather not do if I don't have to. Page2RSS is closer to the mark, but the output is messy (multiple stories in the same feed item). Businessweek.com, which is owned by Bloomberg News, offers RSS feeds with Bloomberg News, but they don't allow for narrowing down on just the environment reporting. Is there a solution out there that's better? [more inside]

Looking for a replacement for the soon-to-be-gone RSS reader Bloglines. Specific requirements inside... [more inside]
I've been an enthusiastic Bloglines user for years, and I've accumulated almost 1,000 items that I've marked as "keep new" which show up at the bottom of each of my feeds, waiting for me to finally get around to reading them. Now that I'm forced to switch (most likely to Google Reader), these items don't seem to get exported to the new reader. How can I retain these items as saved when I make the switch, so I don't have to try and read (or delete) all 1,000 of them by October 1st when Bloglines shuts down??
