    I've been subscribing to Windows Central for years through RSS feeds. First on Google Reader and then on Feedly. In recent months though the amount of SPAM being posted to the feed became unbearable. Just look at the last 25 postings (with my categorization SPAM/NEWS):

    There is no paid subscription (wish there was). I am not aware of any way to filter the non news articles out, either.
