    woohoo, yeah it was huge, i was contemplating greasemonkeying it at one point lol

    Is there no way of fixing the width in the site css? or does it just mangle the rss feeds?

    If anyone knows PHP and would be able to modify the RSS module so that it stips out the images, I think it would be fixed.

    I think I can edit the RSS module to remove images, I have worked with Dragonfly for a while since before it was even called Dragonfly
