Ask and Ye Shall Receive

Yesterday I whined that Fox's new Family Guy blog was hardly a blog at all. Without RSS or permalinks one hardly deserves the esteemed title of blog. Well folks, it appears that someone out in the ether is listening. Check out this latest post from the Family Guy site (now a blog):
Apparently some of the top bloggers on this information super highway have found our little House-O-Guy and pointed out that we’re slightly behind the curve in this digital age of time efficiency. So The Baron has done what any good blogmaster does and kissed their @$$*$ by adding a RSS Feed and permanent links at the bottom of each post for quick reference. Because, really, who would want to actually visit and read through sites? May your worn hands be set free from the unwarranted tyranny of repeated clicking...
There you have it. A bunch of people complain and things get done. It's amazing how this stuff works. And congratulations Fox, you're not as dumb as you look and you just earned yourself a lot of readers whom also happen to write.
