An aging virgin
Merlin Mann writing on Kung Fu Grippe about the thought process behind the decision to pull full-content RSS feeds from TheAtlantic.com during a redesign

This reeks of the same bush-league decision-making that hobbled Hulu, gets music fans sued, and keeps high-quality content locked in a tower like an aging virgin — too special to be manhandled by the riff-raff who are reluctant to pony up the lavish dowry that was the fashion fifty years earlier.

Update
The Atlantic’s James Fallows says the lack of content in the RSS feeds was a bug in the new CMS.
