Remove comments from Slashdot RSS feed

RSS comments on iPhone Google Reader

Comment flood in RSS

Trying to scroll though a Slashdot RSS feed on the mobile version of Google Reader is brutal. Instead of the scrollbox of article comments you see in the full version of Reader, every comment is embedded into the feed on an iPhone. So to get to the next story you have to swipe and swipe and swipe to get past them all. The embedded comments only appear (currently anyway) in the RSS feed, not the Atom feed. So subscribe to the Atom feed and you’re good to go. Now if Slashdot would just add the inline links back to their feed…

Update: Another option to Improve Slashdot RSS: Redux

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
