I’ve had a number of complaints the last few days that my RSS feed seems to be messed up and people are getting multiple copies of the WRT54G post. As far as I can tell the feeds coming from the site are fine, it’s somewhere at Feedburner that the RSS is being mangled, and by extension at Google. I’ve had a number of issues with the Feedburner/Google setup lately, I lost approximately a thousand readers a month or so ago and they’ve never come back. I was told this is just a problem with Google Reader reporting the numbers and not a real issue, but I’m less and less inclined to believe this.
I apologize to everyone who’s getting multiple copies of certain posts, I have no idea how to stop it. I’m sticking with Feedburner for a little while longer in the hopes they can get their stuff together, but I draw the line at the point where they start driving people away from the blog.
Update: I have ‘unpublished’ the WRT54G post, it was causing too many people problems due to the continuous republishing in the RSS feeds. I will try reposting it this weekend and see if the problem returns.
