To Feedly readers

Apparently Feedly is changing links to content on blogs and news sources to point at their own pages. I want Scripting News readers to know, if they use Feedly, they will be missing all kinds of good stuff we’re doing here.

If that’s what they (people reading my site through Feedly) want, then it’s okay with me. What’s not okay is if Feedly somehow represents their pages as mine. If that’s what they’re doing, or planning on doing, then I ask you to find another way of reading my site.

There’s no excuse for representing links to other people’s writing as your own. It’s one of the ugliest sides of the web. That Feedly, which has up to now been a fairly classy company, would contemplate this, makes me think they must not understand.
