If you ask me (you didn't), both Scott and John are letting them off the hook too easily. I want my e-mail newsletters to be available as RSS feeds. I already have too many daily and weekly newsletters cluttering my inbox. And since I don't use a GUI mail client, I have to paste the URLs to things I want to visit.

I've slowly been migrating to RSS feeds when they're available. Geek sites like Slashdot, Freshmeat, and use Perl have them. But many others do not yet.

Interesting that you ask for RSS feeds from newsletters because the one thing people have been screaming at us to offer on MarketingFix which is complete with RSS 1.0, 2.0 and .91 feeds is an email newsletter...

I just find that funny.
