I'm looking to keep in tune with the funny side of life and even improve my sense of humour. Basically I find if I regularly read jokes I seem to enjoy life more and even start making ones up myself. I like using rss to keep up with my favourite sites and I really love the idea of a website where people submit new jokes everyday and they are put into a feed which I can easily access. Does anything like this exist?

Best CMS for user-driven podcasts? I want to set up a site where users will login and submit podcasts, and then be able to access them by each user's RSS feed, or to add them to category feeds etc. Is there a CMS (Drupal, Joomla, etc) that will facilitate this?

I need to try to make a business case that my internet company should start publishing RSS feeds. We like traffic, and my claim is that RSS will bring new traffic in. But I don't have a frame of reference for how much. It would be great to know, for example, what percentage of MetaFilter's users click in from an RSS reader. Any data from CNET or any other site, really, would be helpful. How much traffic growth can RSS drive?

Looking for a tool that can take multiple RSS feeds, strip duplicate entries and output a single feed. None of the RSS meshing tools I'm seeing seem to offer the duplicate removal. I'm subscribed to searches through 20+ feeds to make sure I catch all available references of a URL on blogs, courtesy of MonitorThis, but the number of duplicates is becoming a big problem.
I have been scouring the web for a way to get easily-available local-area movie schedules via RSS. Yahoo, Google, and IMDB all present perfectly decent HTML of this information, and there is one My Yahoo to RSS service; sadly, it's ad hoc and frequently fails to set the localization cookie. What am I missing? This should be a revenue oppotunity for the studios and theaters - where is the sweet creamy RSS I crave?
I have been using reblog to combine two feeds (for a blog and a forum) which I then publish through Feedburner. What I want to do is have the blog part of my feed update normally (i.e. individual posts) and the forum part of my feed compiled into a daily link list (which itself is published as if it were ONE feed post each day)... What ways exist for me to do this? [more inside]

How could I capture the steady stream of popularly ranked links on a web site (in this case http://del.icio.us/popular/). I thought it would be a snap with an RSS-enabled site - but after googling/trying different RSS readers, I am overwhelmed and have not found a solution. The idea is to capture the links on my hard drive so I don't miss anything if I'm away for a few days. (Bonus if I can weed out the repeats!)
I have an HTML file whose title is Donald. It contains autodiscovery metadata for three RSS feeds, titled Huey, Dewey and Louie. Firefox recognizes the feeds and offers them with these titles. But if I subscribe to one, Firefox labels it Donald -- the title of the original page, not the specific feed. How can I get Firefox to use the feed title instead, to avoid confusing users?

I'm starting a new blog on a wide-ranging and ever-shifting set of topics, and I want to let my readers choose which of those topics to follow via RSS. I could offer tons of separate feeds, but many of these would be ephemeral, so I'd want to make it really easy to unsubscribe. Ideally, each user would get a single custom feed, the content of which they could control from my site (see here and here). Is there any way of doing this? [more inside]

What are the legal implications of re-publishing full-text entries from another site's RSS feed? Planet sites do it for mostly legitimate purposes, and spam-logs do it for, well, spammy purposes. But are there any laws that apply? The US copyright code doesn't assume the information is already freely available on the internet, so it seems like a grey area. [more inside]
