Department of Complaints, Requests

Your many, many, many e-mails telling me how much you hated the new convention of bolded names and institutions worked. My overlords here at the Post have decided to let me drop the style.

In return, I've got a favor to ask: During the first few weeks of the blog, the main RSS feed was, to put it lightly, troubled. While those kinks got worked out, I directed you all to an RSS feed that's mainly for internal use. Its address is:

https://voices.washingtonpost.com/ezra-klein/fast.xml

As you know, that works fine. But now the main feed is working too. The difference is pretty simple: About once every 20 or 30 posts, the main feed includes one post with an advertisement. Annoying, right? But it also helps make this blog viable. More to the point, it helps convince the Washington Post that full text RSS feeds -- which they've kindly allowed me to retain -- are viable. So though no one likes advertisements, making full-text feed more viable as a matter of revenue means they'll be more common at revenue-dependent institutions. Which will, in the long-run, be good for those of you who read blogs on RSS. Put differently, if you use the fast.xml feed and wouldn't mind switching, I'd appreciate it. The main feed is:

Well, I suppose if I put up with it for TPM then I can do so here too.
