RIP RSS delivery of Google Alerts

Wow, I guess I should have seen this coming but I still don’t get it. Google killed Google Reader but it also killed RSS delivery of Google Alerts. Hello, Google? What is the logic behind this short of just trying to kill RSS?

Here’s what I saw in Feedly this morning:

Google Alerts - No More RSS 1

When I got to Google Alerts I say this:

Google Alerts - No More RSS 2

I clicked the CHANGE ALL button and now have this:

Google Alerts - No More RSS 3
