confused, angry

Okay, Internet people, we're straightening this out /right now/.

So, they're RSS feeds, right? I've heard people mention their RSS feeders, which feed RSS feeds. We're staring down a semantic nightmare right here. What's being fed to what? Is some digital entity eating our content? (The horror!) The RSS is like a roll of tape, which is being fed into aggrandizing clients like Thunderbird or server-side ones like LJ pleasently features. What we're reading is the RSS content from the feed after our programs start recieving the feed, right?
