RSS feeds

A Best Offer Online Daily site on the Internet which shall remain unnamed publishes an RSS feed, showing their offer of the day with some descriptive information. Let’s call it format X, and location A. After a month or 2, they change the format of that file to format Y, still at location A. 3 days later, format Y moves to location B. A month later they change to format Z at location B. 3 months later, format P at location B. 5 months later, format Q at location C. Funny note there, format P at location B is still there, it just shows the same old item every day and is not cleaned up.

I use this RSS feed in an application and am pretty fed up trying to keep up with their flying shit implementation of RSS. I can’t imagine everyone goes to their site every once in a while and updates their RSS reader to yet another new location. Am I missing the point of RSS? I thought it was fire and forget… Sigh.
