Thanks Steve,

You may also want to explain that this isn't even new technology - RMS
has been reading websites (with Emacs, I assume) via email for probably
longer than most people have been using a computer:
http://stallman.org/stallman-computing.html

RMS says as point 5 of how he uses computers:
"I have several free web browsers on my laptop, but I generally use my
own machine only to talk with a few sites operated for or by the GNU
Project, FSF or me. I will fetch web pages from other sites by sending
mail to a program that fetches them much like wget and then mails them
back to me."

Perhaps he will share the methods he uses in more detail?

I've cc'ed him and I'm sure he may eventually reply. If so, Richard, the
context is this blog post:
http://blog.saweis.net/security-issues-with-feed-over-email and if not,
thanks for reading this far! ;-)

All the best,
Jake
