There’s a lot of talk about RSS and the role it is assuming in Internet marketing. Detractors of RSS that embraced a recent report by JupiterResearch.
The report from JupiterResearch claims that “RSS will not have a significant effect as a supplemental alternative to e-mail marketing”.

Online marketing pundit, Jeff Molander, also weighed in with his thoughts in a piece, eMail Firms Fight RSS Via Nonsense.
Well, as they say, forward thinking marketers go to Mars to get more candy bars. And e-mail marketers go to Jupiter to get more stupider.
