Feed Scuttling

I recently tried to subscribe to the RSS feeds at thelongtail.com only to find out that despite listing the feeds in the source (right where you'd expect them) and providing multiple formats, they all simply redirect to an Atom feed.

Don't advertise a feed as RSS 2.0 or RSS 1.0, then secretly scuttle users to an Atom feed. It just ain't cool.
