My question is how do you get the normies on board? They make the bulk of the user base of everything, and are a key part of modern site traffic. How are you gonna get them to even bother with RSS?
all hope is lost for the normies. the bottom line is that for anyone who actually gives a shit and wants to be the slightest bit epistemically responsible, something like RSS and other forms of personally curating one's content (like just going to your favorite news sources directly) should be more widely known.
