in thread Fix the Perl News header

A few automated, widely-used RSS aggregators are the best starting-point for Perl news.

That's a good general policy, and it's easy to understand and support.

You don't have to defend it by tearing down the work of other people.

    I wish there was a better term than "news" for blog aggregation. Without human editorial decisions, it's just a firehose. I'm not saying it's not valuable, but it's not news. My whole point in starting Perlbuzz with Skud was to specifically pick the interesting stuff out of the firehose.
