RSS Feed?

How comes there is no RSS feed of these forums available? Much easier then having to check back here regularly

From what I know of forums/blogging, I would imagine it’s because: 1) They weren’t used much at the time the forum started 2) It would require a redesign, while the current format is pretty much self-maintaining 3) There are benefits to the forum owners to making people check the forums (drives advertising). Many of those benefits are lost with RSS feeds
