I’m trying to make of it what you will, but you won’t tell me. 🙂

They claim one motive (privacy). You claim another (not wishing to expand the web platform).

Which one is true and which one is false?

As well as linking to the usual RSS feeds (blog posts, links, notes), it’s also got an explanation of how you can subscribe to a customised RSS feed using tags.
