This very interesting, does this mean that you can not add C-SPAN’s RSS feed to a directory? I don’t get why they would do this. What does this accomplish. Can a directory not have a C-SPAN podcast in their directory? I think they need to clarify what they mean . Really though, what should I care, they are only hurting themselves.
