Some readers (again, such as Feed On Feeds) treat that as the canonical URL and will update their subscriptions to point to that URL instead, so setting rel=“self” to the unauthenticated feed means most users will be unable to remain logged in.
Ahh—ok. Makes sense. I’m not doing this in my reader—I don’t want to risk
rel=“self” being wrong. Is there a compelling reason to do this? I mean if I’m
able to fetch the feed, why risk it?
Thank you for the response!!
