Someone recommended a $29 RSS reader on askme. Could they be a shill? September 2, 2005 9:14 PM   Subscribe

Does shilling for a $29 RSS-reader that "brings the news directly to you" sound a bit...well...suspicious to anyone else?

It smells a little shilly, but only a little.

He provides no link to the product and the search on the homepage he links to in his profile returns no results for FeedDemon. I'm gonna go with probably just a guy who likes the program.

Eh. His other comments don't really sound shilly.

It's intresting how many people post only answers on AskMe.

Yeah you're probably right. The fact that his answer wasn't very relevant to the question (they wanted live coverage, he told them to use RSS - most readers only retrieve new feed updates once an hour) made me suspicious.

No, not really. Feeddemon and netnewswire both cost some money, but are good programs. I don't think it's a shill post at all, just someone saying they are good readers worth the money.
