The real question is: how long will it take for IM and RSS to get broken the way email did?

Bryan

Since spam works for its progenitors, and the net is bigger than it was preWeb, I suspect a lot faster.

How can we forestall that dire outcome?

Spammers are already gleaning e-mail addresses from RSS feeds (Spammers Harvesting RSS) and you can embed popup codes or text ads in RSS feeds (Ready Steady Spam). RSS validators can help some, identifying tags like OBJECT or EMBED.
