I wonder if I got the stupid Sony Root Kit even though I never put in a disk from them? It especially doesn't want to read the part about that, it seems to skip over it at all cost. Could I have gotten it in the last Spyware infestation I had a nightmare cleaning up?

Hi Jennifer,
Thanks for that interesting story.

I'm writing to ask whether the page seemed a little squirley to you. I went
there using JFW and I wasn't able to read the page with JAWS. It seemed like
it was constantly updating or something. Finally, I cut and pasted in to
notepad and was able to read the story.

Was there something going on on your end?

Apologies to those of you on the Yahoo-based podcasters list.  Some info
from that list is being cross-posted, included below my name.

I thought that at least some of you who use Feedburner (or another similar
third party service) might want to take this Blog post into consideration.

Personally, it seems to me that feed hijacking is unlikely, especially if
your listener-share is small; however, I'm glad to at least be aware of the
risks of relinquishing control of my feed (the one I am imagining creating).
