You're actually missing the point entirely. MacSOUP, an offline reader,
always downloads articles you're reading. Then, after a pre-set period
or article limit, it purges articles from the offline database. One can
choose to "lock" articles, which keeps them in the database
indefinitely, where one can access them directly from within MacSOUP
indefinitely. This is no different than saving emails using Mail,
Entourage, Thunderbird, or whatever mail client. It's doing the same
thing with news articles.
A suitable backup strategy is a whole separate thing. The point is,
Jamie uses MacSOUP, likes using MacSOUP, and made a public post to
request that the author add a specific feature. Is there some reason why
a non-MacSOUP user should object to this?
