RSS Feeds And Other Housekeeping Issues

Okay, okay, we hear you already. You want to add PE to your RSS feed but can't. Well, there's a reason for that – we don't have an RSS feed yet. When you click on the RSS button on the PE page, it takes you to the main RSS page for CBSNews.com and we're not on it. We know it's confusing and we'll have it fixed just as soon as possible. If all goes right, you'll be able to get an RSS feed of the 10 latest entries by the end of the week, and we'll make sure to let you know as soon as it happens.

On another front, some readers have expressed frustration about the comments section. First off, for legal reasons, you must go through a quick registration and agree to the rules of engagement. Many other sites require the same thing. Secondly, the length of the comment is limited to 500 characters, or roughly 100 words. We are working to find a way to let folks know when their comments have reached the limit without losing what has already been written. And the time limit to weigh in on a given entry is 24-hours.

These parameters were set for a reason. First, we want to facilitate a discussion, not a series of dissertations. Second, we want the discussion to be on point, not devolve into a chat room to discuss the latest Brad Pitt romance. These limits might be changed in the future or they may remain the same and we remain open to your thoughts about this.
