Thanks Jeff - your responsiveness is impressive. I'm very pleased to see the policy change.

Mary, thank you again for finding this difference between our FAQ and our privacy policy. We've changed the privacy policy to reflect what it says in the FAQ. In other words we have taken out the "government investigation" part in the privacy policy.

As for sending unauthenticated info, Elf trys to work with as many RSS readers as possible and most RSS readers do not support authentication. To compound the issue, HTTP authentication comes in several flavours. Nevertheless, we are looking into it to see if we can provide ways to handle authentication.

good work cub reporter! I question their agreement. also why does this program send unauthenticated info? that aint bloglines' fault...right?
