David Berlind, em seu blog na ZDNet:

"A recent flip-flop in Microsoft's blog publishing policy has bubbled up to a larger discussion about the growing popularity of blogs and the potential impact they may have on the entire IT and Internet infrastructure. Up until recently, the entire content of a growing number of blogs being authored by Microsoft employees was available for automated download via the RSS protocol. But, citing stress on its IT infrastructure, Microsoft put on ceiling on the amount of text that could be retrieved via the polling process used by RSS processing software and instead required "subscribers" to visit a Web site to get the full-text.

Not only did the move spark outrage from existing subscribers, it turned the spotlight on the RSS protocol itself, and questions about its efficiency – questions that RSS evangelist Dave Winer is debunking in his blog. In the Tastes Better, But is Still Less Filling Dep't, Microsoft has since upped the restrictions, but not to a level that guarantees subscribers a full download. In the "Connect the Dots Dep't," the Trekky-ish "Cap'tn...she can't take it any more" justification for the restrictions raises all sorts of questions. For example, if text is causing this many headaches, then what will become of images, audio, and video? If a wired infrastructure is suffering under the load, then what of the growing prevalence of significantly more the bandwidth-constrained wireless technologies (both LAN and WAN)? Need more dots? My contemporary Steve Gillmor routinely opines that the RSS feeding frenzy could undermine many of Microsoft's strategic directions, especially if Google dives in with all hands and feet. "
