Yes, and sometimes it starts doing it without being told to, it seems, which is creepy.

I use TT-RSS for that. If something does not have RSS feed, I don't care about that something.

I would have to dig a bit but I can tell you that Thunderbird adds sites to its RSS feeds without my telling it to do so. Because it wasnt intentional I can only speculate what might have caused it.  I only noticed it because I use wireshark sometimes for debugging network issues.
