    What was the rationale for Hubpages deciding to remove the RSS capsule?  Does it hurt search rankings in Google or have some other negative side-effect?  Curious?

      Thanks Simone! That post was an informational post.  I am actually looking for:  What was the rationale for Hubpages deciding to remove the RSS capsule?  Is there a SEO or Google ranking benefit to removing the RSS capsule?  Does having RSS hurt a page or domain in the eyes of Google?  It seems as if a lot of writers on HubPages are not happy about this decision to remove the RSS capsule, as it can be quite useful in some circumstances.  Why did HubPages decide they wanted to let it go?
