Land here, NO HERE!

I just realized how bad some RSS landing pages are. Imagine you're some mundane RSS user and you find yourself reading the CNN Tech page. You see an RSS icon and you Copy Link Location and paste it into your favorite RSS reader. By the way, you just subscribed to Top Stories, not Tech. You see, the landing page for the RSS link is actually HTML and the first autodiscovery link on that page is for the Top Stories, not Tech  :-(
