    Is that considered Spammy or against any rules of using other websites content?

    Normally not for RSS as you get a few lines and then a "read more" on their site. Some sites like Craig's List only allows RSS for personal use only.

    On my Apple site I pull in some feeds into forums (basically latest Apple News) but they are closed forums (no posting/replying allowed). It's not to "increase the post count but to help provide some additional info on the site (and references back to the official Apple site).
