Submission + - Links Slashdot's RSS Feed

DoorFrame writes: Why is it that Slashdot, one of the first bastions of tech-friendly news, is so un-hip when it comes to RSS feeds? I can accept the ads in Slashdot's RSS feed (with a heavy sigh), but what I can't accept or understand is Slashdot's unwillingness to provide direct links within the RSS feed so I can go directly to the news item of interest. I have to click through Slashdot to get to where I want to go. I understand that this increases ad revenue, but it dramatically decreases the point and utility of having RSS feeds in the first place.

So, what's up with that? When Slashdot is behaving like Digg rather than Reddit, you know there's a problem.
