This RSS Robot is said to read your rss feeds and then push them to the end user. But It keeps on reloading the rss feed over and over and over.

Example of abuse. I set my RSS feed Time To Live (TTL) to no more than 1 load per day but this bot is loading the feed every min and ignoring the TTL.

So its banned.
After banning I am seeing hits from another dynamic China IP address. I dont think this is a real Feed service.

it is a real feed service that we are all using everyday. I see why I can't get notification from yuur blog for a while. :(

You need to complain to the chinese running that service.

They ignore the Time To Live setting that I use which requires that the feed be loaded no more than once per day. They were caught hammering the feed 20 times a hr. Since they do not follow the TTL settings of the RSS standard they are banned.

Blog owners are allowed to set the TTL to any thing they want.

Your other option is to have them pull my feed burner feed which is a copy of the orginal.

For your info this blog doesn't block that service so thats not why it is not working for you.

I am blocking in on my other sites.


I would suggest that no one use such a chinese service running on known spam and open proxy ips.

good points, I did get their support message that they are implementing TTL, to be released soon in days. Thanks for your reminder. However, I can't still get your feed update via Anothr.
