95% of the Webring sites that use RSS are now being accepted by the webring aggregator.

I sleep well knowing that the difference between me and people who spend their days posting self-serving takes about "individual solutions and structural problems" is that at the end of the day, while someone has spent their day being negative on the internet, I have cleaned up a beach.
