Feeds seems to be turned on by default. Provide a way to not have feeds at all.

  • Component changed from Administration to General
  • Version set to 2.3

Could easily be handled by a plugin for the few people that want this.

Not sure how I feel about including it in the core.

Er, let me clarify.

Cons: probably few would use, so it adds "bloat". Plugin could handle easily.

Pros: with all the sites that just rip off content, wp installs that don't want to support feeds or rippers of content can just disable themes

Seems like plugin territory to me.

Plugin could add a filter to "request" and look for the feed query_var, then call wp_die or wp_redirect when it's found. That would break all feed capabilities right away.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

As others have said, this can be done with a plugin.
