But the image was cookied by Motorola. When I opened the post in FeedDemon I got a cookie warning. This leads me to think that cookies are acceptable in at least some versions of RSS.
I’d be interested in knowing if people are starting to see cookies as a way of tracking RSS readership, much like they are used in e-mail newsletters. Since each feed is not unique, I guess that “single pixel gifs” or “web bugs” are not an effective tracking tool in this channel.
