right now if you post a games or whatever story, Slashdot will
direct you to games.slashdot.org when you click through. But the
RSS feeds send ALL links directly to slashdot.org. This means that
sectional stories are stripped of their contextual chrome.

As a side note, they also send all RSS hits to the dynamic
article.pl... someday we may need to revisit that.

    CowboyNeal, if you can't figure out how to fix this simply, pass it off to
    me, I might be able to do it. It's a bit tricky, but should not require major
    changes, or hacks.

    As to going to dynamic article.pl, we don't want logged in users to go to
    .shtml, because that would be really annoying to them.
