I just went through both the free and premium packets/templates for RSS. I found exactly one in the free (lill's) and none in the premium. When I look at the threads in this section, the last activity on many of them was 6-8 months ago.

My question is, why so little activity and interest in RSS? Search engines love the recent activity that RSS feeds provide.

If forum participants aren't using RSS, what are you using? The vast majority of packets are for forum or directory submissions, followed by bookmarking. Are those the only submissions most people are actually using?
