Get the 4-1-1 with RSS

Get the 4-1-1 on what's happening in the Symantec Connect community as soon at it's posted. RSS (Really Simple Syndication) lets you tap into a list of what's new in the community -- without even visiting. If you see a headline in your RSS reader you want to know more about, a simple click takes you to where you can read to your heart's content. Spammers hate RSS because they can't use it to fill your mailbox. Nothing chafes a spammer more than info delivery via RSS.
